Registration for the 2015/16 Season
Thank you for registering your Junior player - this form ensures that we have your latest contact details and consent for your child to participate for this season.
EVERY Player age 18 and under as of 1st September 2015 must have an online registration form completed by a parent or guardian. Registration and consent is a requirement of England Hockey to whom we are affiliated and is also necessary for insurance purposes.
The form is below after a bit of practical information.
Thank you very much in advance.

England Hockey and the Girls and Boys Leagues all work to a system of two year age groups. We prefer to keep players in their correct age group. There are exceptional circumstances, particularly in the very young squads as players are learning and developing at different rates.
There are strict rules, however, in League and Cup competitions that require players to stick to their age groups. When players are ready and it will help their development, they can play with our adult teams (more information below).
Please note that the England Hockey Single System (JDC, JAC, JRPC, NAGS) runs on calendar year birthdates. Players with a birthdate between 1 Sep and 31 Dec will be in a different age group for the Single System (County, Regional, National selection) than for the Club/League system.

Juniors Playing and Training with Adult Teams
Club policy is for Junior Players to play in their age group. Some of our older Junior players will benefit from and enjoy the challenge of playing with our various Men's and Ladies' teams. England Hockey policy (and therefore Club policy) requires a Junior player to be at least 13 years old to play in adult matches (15 for England Hockey Leagues).
It is important for parents to be aware of the differences between Junior and Adult hockey. We therefore require parents of all Junior players who would like to participate in Adult training sessions and matches to complete an additional consent form (much shorter than the one below as we will already have all of your details).
Please complete the additional form by clicking here or finding the form on the left hand side grey buttons of the Juniors webpage. Thank you for your understanding.
