COLTS – 2018-2019 Season

The Old Cranleighan Colts section is entering its seventh year in September 2018 and is keen to hear from anyone with children interested in getting involved.

PLEASE NOTE we have a lot of interest and will cap numbers to enable sessions to be a manageable size.  Places will be on a first come first served basis with spaces reserved for existing members until the end May 2018. Availability will be highlighted when you click on the link below and prospective members added to the waitlist if their age group is full.

Waitlisted from 17-18 season/ New enquiries to membership groups where a waitlist exists

Existing members have until the end May 2018 to sign up for next season, at this point any places that remain will be offered to any on the waitlist in the order that they signed up.  A period of 14 days will be given for you to confirm if you wish to take up the offer of a place.  If no response is given at that point then the next waitlisted person will be contacted.

Training is spread across three local pitches – OCs Thames Ditton base and two supplementary pitches at Hinchley Wood and Oaken Lane both under 10 mins drive away.  Provisional timings and pitch allocation is given below (subject to change)

Mid-Week Training For U10s and above:

All midweek training takes place at OCHC.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the popularity of these sessions we are evaluating how these sessions will be structured next season. We will advise shortly of how we intend to run the sessions.

There is an additional cost of £50 for the season for Colts wishing to take up this option – please log into PSO and select this optional extra from the payment tab.

Matches

We are entered into the Surrey hockey leagues for most age groups, both for boys and girls and there will be plenty of competitive hockey for all of those who are selected to play.  However we will also be organising other fixtures outside of this list where we will be inviting local clubs, where possible at broadly the same time on a Sunday either home or away. The seasons culminates with the end of season Surrey tournament which normally takes place in March for all age groups.
