Matches take place on Friday nights at Marjon University during the hockey season. All age groups will have games on mini 1/3 pitches against other local sides in a friendly safe environment. Parents are encouraged to attend and support our teams and our volunteers and should do so enthusiastically, but within the spirit of the game. As a Club we celebrate fair play and sportsmanship above all else.
We have a dedicated and supportive group of Managers and Coaches who will strive to give the players the best possible experience at DDJHC. All our volunteers follow our club ethos of inclusive, fun and supportive hockey for all. Teamwork makes the Dreamwork!
The 2020-21 Season will be unlike any of the seasons that have gone before. Parent support has always been a cornerstone of the club. This year due to Covid-19 we are going to ask parents to take a small step back.
Teams will meet 15 minutes before the pushback outside the pitch. The children will be met by the Team Managers/Assistant coaches and taken into the pitch. Parents will not be allowed within the pitch area but are very much encouraged to support all the teams from outside the fence. The bank behind the pitches offers a good vantage point. We remind everyone to remain socially distant.
Groups are limited to 30 within each 1/3 pitch. Therefore, matches will be a round robin with 2 other teams. In order that the managers can organise the teams it is very important that parents confirm availability as soon as possible. Typically the manager will need to confirm their team on the Wednesday before the match. We strive to ensure that all children that want to play can play. So that no-one misses out we may join with other clubs to form a “Barbarian” team.
Play well in 2020-21!!!
