Women’s Hockey World Cup 2018 Public Ballot

The 2018 Women’s Hockey World Cup is being held in London from 21st July to 5th August 2018.
You can pre-register for the public ballot for tickets by following this link:

I was lucky enough to go to some hockey at the 2012 Olympic Games in London and it was a brilliant experience even though I only saw the 11-12th place play off! Live international level hockey is one of the world’s great sporting spectacles and TV just can’t do it justice. Going to the event will be a fantastic day out and if you have little ones it will definitely inspire them to start or continue playing hockey so I urge you to see if you can make it.
Hope to see you there!

Junior Academy Newsletter July 2017

Welcome to our newsletter!

By Charlotte May

Here you will find the most recent and up to date information on training and matches for our Junior Academy.

Sunday Training

During the summer, there is no weekday training but the Sunday sessions continue year round at Beaconside from 10-12 every Sunday. The ladies’ 1st XI coach, Andy Jones, and a team of assistant coaches run our training sessions for children aged 5 years plus. The first session is free and if you bring a friend you both get to play for free.

On Saturday 17th June a group of our juniors took part in a very hot outdoor tournament at Aldersley Stadium and performed extremely well against some very tough opposition! Back (left to right): Charlotte (Coach), Kirstie, Ella, Allana, Morgan, Lizzie, Mike (Coach) Front (left to right): Callum, Joe, Hugo, Charlie, Dougie (GK)

Upcoming Dates:

  • 15th July—U16 tournament @ Cannock

  • Summer time! – Training will resume on Sunday 3rd September and weekday sessions will start that week.

Parents v Children

On 30th July, we will be holding our bi-annual parents vs. children match at Beaconside. So dust off your sticks and come down to the pitch at 10am for probably the most competitive hockey match we will see all season!
