Wanderers Junior Hockey

We're excited to announce that we will be starting junior hockey sessions from September 2014.

Where: Battersea Park

All weather sports ground
Corner of Albert Bridge Road and Prince of Wales Drive
SW11 4NJ

When: Sundays 9-10am, September - March.

Start date: Sunday 14 September 2014

Age groups: For September 2014 we will cater for Mixed U6, U7 and U8 only (girls and boys in school years 1, 2 and 3 in September)

Please note that for these age groups the sessions are not drop off and parents are required to stay at the pitch.

Annual Subs: £100 for the first child, £85 for siblings. These subs cover all the training sessions from September to March.

Kit: Children will need shin pads, mouth guards and a hockey stick. Wanderers junior kit in the club colours will be available in due course.

How to join: For all membership enquiries please contact Fiona Henderson-Ross on fihendersonross@yahoo.co.uk or 07900 490941 

Priority membership: The coaching and running of the Club is all done by volunteers and cannot run without the help of parents. We hope that all parents will be prepared to give up their time to help out the Club, should the need arise. However, we will give priority to children whose parents are prepared to volunteer regularly in some capacity, either coaching, assisting the coaches or other admin/support roles within the Club. Please mention if you are willing to volunteer when you register your child. Priority will also be given to children of past and present Wanderers.

Coaching: If you're interested in helping to coach our juniors, please contact Fiona as we are always looking for extra coaches and we can help you work towards coaching qualifications.
