Junior Teams qualify for Regionals
England Hockey run national competitions in the U12, 14, 16 and 18 age categories. The Under 14 and 16 age groups qualify for the national competition through a two tiered process: Tier 1 is a local league of 5 teams. The top two teams progress to 'Tier 2' which is a pool of four teams within a region. The top team in each of eight Tier 2 pools gets to compete in the national finals in May.
GHC Under 16 Boys, Under 14 Girls and Under 14 Boys have all come top two in their Tier 1 leagues and progress to Tier 2 in March and April. The Under 14 Boys came top of their league, scoring the maximum allowed number of goals in each match with no goals scored against them. Tier 2 will no doubt be more difficult.
Regionals beckon also for our Under 10 and 12 Girls and our Under 12 Boys. Unprecented Junior Succes. Well done and thank you to everyone who has been involved in making Guildford a Great Place to Play!

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.
