Junior Competition

Our current structure is a combination of past Warwick Junior Hockey structures that aligns with advice from Hockey Australia and Hockey Qld, as well as associations all across Australia. The aim is to evolve our sport locally, strengthen our players and rep teams through inclusive formats, and maintain the fun and excitement of team sport participation that all of our kids, of all strengths, deserve.

VALUE FOR MONEY!
Warwick Junior Hockey season fees are competitively low compared to other associations. So what does your child get for their hockey fees? They get free weekly training, skills sessions and game mentoring with accreditated coaches, multiple opportunities to play on the field and increase their game time each week, development clinics, team socks, playing shirts, end of season team photo and recognition awards, turf and grass fields cared for and maintained by our groundsmen, watered turf, and use of training and game play equipment.

2020 Season Junior Information

4-7 Yrs (born 2013 or younger)

U9 (born 2011 and 2012) Modifieds Essential Skills Stage. Thursday skills session + Saturday game.

U11 (born 2009 and 2010) Game Sense & Team Work Development Stage. Super Sixers game, Turf Only!

U13 (born 2007 and 2008) Confident Team Player Stage. Full field 11-a-side, 60min game.


***NB: Confident and skilled players in each age group are encouraged to 'play up' into the next age group (providing more hockey time and value for money), but there will be a strict policy on players staying in and participating in their current age group as it is an important element of their development as a player. The coordinators appreciate parents positively supporting this structure.***


What do you need to play Junior hockey?
A hockey stick, shin guards, long socks, runners, white shorts/skirt, mouth guard, hat and a big smile!
* All players must wear a mouth guard and shin guards for training and games.
* Our hockey shop will stock a majority of the above items so please come and see us on Saturday! White skirts will need to be purchased elsewhere however we do stock white shorts in our hockey shop. (White shorts / skirts are compulsory for all juniors including minkeys)

Notes on Structure:


U6/U9/U11/U13 STRUCTURE

·         No grading confusion, ALIGNS with representative age levels.

·         All children will be placed in a team in their age group, playing up an age group is by choice made at registration   time, no extra cost.

·         Small sided games (supported by HA & HQld) eliminate ‘one touch per game’ – inclusive team building culture.

·         More opportunities to increase weekly game time & value for money.

·         Prevent rushing ages through levels – enjoyment with friends, opportunity to be the best they can be in their age group and mentor team mates through game leadership and teamwork, and more time to master basic skills.

 

PLAYING IN AND ABOVE THEIR AGE GROUP

Child should display Advanced Competency and ‘Game Sense’ for their age and a genuine personal interest and commitment to having more game time each week:

U9 – Play in U9 and up into U11 & U13

U11 – Play U11 and up into U13

U13 - Request to play up into Teen League.
