Blackheath & Elthamians Hockey Club - Junior Section: Boys & Girls
We offer coaching sessions and competitive matches for boys and girls aged 5 to 16 of various abilities throughout the hockey season. These run every Sunday until early December and begin again in January running through to the end of March. We then have a Summer programme running May through to July. We also run various Easter and Summer Camps with our partners at STICKWISE.
If you'd like to give a hockey a try you can attend the first few sessions without commitment.
The sessions take place on a Sunday morning at London Marathon Ground: College Meadow Astro, Eltham College, Grove Park Road, Mottingham (SE9 4QF) or at Colfes School, Horn Park Ln, Lee, London SE12 8AW

Junior Coaching Sessions are run by a number of fully qualified and DBS certified coaches.
It is hoped that as the boys and girls progress they will graduate to competitive club matches on a Saturday with the Men’s and Women's sections where they will continue to develop and perhaps become the 1st XI players of the future.
Under 18 Boys and Girls will join the Senior Club as Students at a different rate and should train with the Senior Club on a Mon, Tues or Wed evening. Under 16 Boys and Girls are also invited to attend Senior Club training.
Boys and Girls may also be involved in Sunday Leagues/Competitions. Our aim is to provide coaching for each age group each week irrespective of whether matches are being held, although there may be exceptions. Lead coaches in each group will keep players informed of match details and competitions.
Each age group will have its own appointed, fully qualified Coaches who will be a members of BEHC. The Coaching set up will be coordinated and overseen by the BEHC Head Coaches but implemented by the appointed age group Coaches under their guidance .

Blackheath & Elthamians Hockey Club will strive to remove barriers to enable access to hockey for all those young people who want it. We are able to consider a concessionary rate and bursaries for members who may have low incomes or financial difficulties. Please contact our Hon Treasurer Ravi Wickramasuriya to discuss the options.
We have Welfare Officers for the Junior Section; Fenno Outen and Jeanette Grabham and we follow the England Hockey governing body guidelines on protecting and safeguarding young people in sport. Further information, polices and guidelines can be obtained upon membership and in the documents section of the website.
Our aim is for you/ your child to benefit from good coaching, comradeship and enjoyment so they can reach their personal goal (at whatever level that may be) in playing one of the best team sports - Hockey. We hope that you and your child will join in our enthusiasm for what we believe will be a very bright future for Hockey in our area.
