Devonport Dragons Junior Hockey Club is based at the Brickfields astro turf pitch at Raglan Road and Stone House Barracks. Each session costs £3 per child, and the club caters for both boys and girls from five to sixteen years of age. The club is the junior section of PGSOB Men’s Hockey Club, and Mannamead Ladies Hockey Club.
For Boys (years Reception to school year 7) and girls, the training runs every Sunday morning from 10:00am to 11:30am during the hockey season. For boys (school years 8 to 11), the training is on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm until 9pm
All hockey sticks, balls, and goal keeping equipment are provided on Sunday. All players are required to bring their own shinpads and highly recommended to wear as a gum shield. Suitable clothing and footwear should always be worn, and water should be brought to each training session.
All training is led by suitably qualified hockey coaches, supported by hockey players. All adults working within the club dealing directly with junior club members have to submit their personal details to the Disclosure and Barring vetting (was CRB).
The club teams will compete in the Under 8, Under 10, Under 12 & Under 14 leagues on Friday nights at Marjons as well as any local festivals or tournaments.
However, this is all dependant on having enough volunteers and parents to manage the team. Can you help? Please talk to any of the coaches if you can.
All team selection is primarily based on age, as well commitment and attitude towards and during training.
All junior club members have to complete a club membership and consent form, which is to be signed by a parent or guardian. Club members are always expected to abide by all club rules, pay any match fees or subscriptions promptly, abide by the Rules of Hockey, and always train, play, and compete in a fair and sporting manner.
And, above all, Devonport Dragons Junior HC is about enjoying yourself!
