Alex Danson Visits GHC - 23 January
The Junior Section will be treated to a special presentation by GB and England Team Member, Alex Danson, on Friday evening during their training evening at the Club. Alex will join the Under 12 Girls for some drills and will then share with our Juniors her thoughts on her journey to London 2012, what inspires her and what it feels like to be an Olympian. She will no doubt also talk about her preparations for the road to Rio 2016.

Under 12 Boys win Gold
One of the tournaments we look forward to each year in the Junior calendar is the Teddington Xmas Invitational. This tournament, held the Sunday before Christmas, includes top teams from across the South region of the country. Not only an excuse to avoid shopping, the Under 10 and 12 boys and girls have a great time and play some really competitive hockey.
Well done to our Under 12 Boys who came home with the gold medals this year.

Junior Tour to Barcelona
Five teams of GHC Junior players ranging in age from 10 to 16, boys and girls, participated in one of Europe's top youth tournaments in Barelona, Spain during the first weekend in December. All teams played very well against strong teams from across Spain and from Russia, Ireland, France and Belgium.
The hockey was fast and physical and our boys and girls did themselves proud by producing some of their finest hockey not to mention their outstanding behaviour on and off the pitch. Coaches, administrators and parents had probably as much fun (or more) than the children; all players were a pleasure to look after and coach during the weekend.
