Calling All Dads of U11-14 Players...

 9th Feb 2020

20191129-739Calling all dads of U11-14 Players. Two questions for you...

First - Before taxi-driving to your kids' sporting events took over your life, did you used to play football or rugby or hockey?

Mike Fitter is our Men's "Back to Hockey" (B2H) Coach; he advises that several of our Friday night B2H group - who are “lapsed” footballers/rugby players and totally new to hockey - are adapting like ducks to water.

These brave souls are having a ball and are likely to form the basis of more dads & lads hockey next season - fantastic progress and fun!

It's not too late to join this winter B2H group 8-9pm on a Friday night at GHC - better for you than sitting in the bar while your sons play!!

It is open to you all, at nil or minimal cost, and we can lend you a stick. Mums are also welcome if they are the designated Friday night hockey drivers (though you are also or otherwise welcome to join Women's B2H - details here.)

If interested in the Friday night training group either – or go and watch his group on the blue pitch near the GK training on a Friday night and approach him there for details. 

Many of you will know Mike as he is / has coached our U10s & U12s boys.


Second - Saturday hockey for 13 /14 year olds – is your son interested for next season?

FYI: Mike also runs our new-this-season Cavaliers men’s Saturday side which aims to include 13 / 14 year olds, B2H dads and is tied together by some experienced players.

So far it has been a great success. Not only are the Cavaliers currently 4th in their league table, but the team has given 10 of our juniors a start to their senior hockey careers - with one player already promoted to a higher side.

We are considering extending this scheme to more juniors next season, so if your son is 13 now or will be during the 2020/21 season, and he would be interested in playing Saturday men’s hockey from the age of 13, so we can start planning!!
