Junior Summer Programme 2021

We will be running a 10-week training programme over the summer term for all members, from U6s to U16s. The hour-long sessions will run at the clubhouse pitch and will be led by Lauren Moors and OCHC coaches.

We have tried to keep the cost of the summer hockey offer as low as possible and the fee for the 10-week programme is £70.

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday
4:30pm U6, U7, U8
5:30pm U10 Girls U14 Girls U12 Girls U10, U12 & U14 Boys
6:30pm U16 Girls & U16 Boys U14 Girls U12 Girls

These are the age groups from the 2020/21 season i.e. the groups they were playing in before Christmas.

Where there are 2 sessions for an age group (U12 and U14 girls), please select your preferred time when you book. To manage numbers, you will need to commit to this time for the season.

Dates: w/c 19 April to w/c 24 May (no hockey during half term) and w/c 7 June to w/c 28 June

In line with COVID guidelines, we have to limit numbers and space will be offered on a first come first served basis.

We never want financial circumstances to prevent our Juniors from playing hockey. If you’d like to talk to Kate, our Treasurer, in confidence about accessing our Hardship fund to help with the Summer Hockey Programme, please get in touch with her at ochctreasurer@gmail.com

Important information about the Summer Hockey Programme – Please read before booking

The information below sets out the basis upon which we are able to offer the Summer Hockey Programme. Please ensure you have read the information below before signing up and follow it when attending. Compliance is essential if we are going to be able to run all of the sessions as planned.

Format of the Summer Hockey Programme

On 25th March, England Hockey confirmed that hockey can return from 29th March under ‘Play – Step 4’ guidance. This is what we have based our guidance on below. If England Hockey update this guidance at any point, we may need to adjust the session format and will be in touch with everyone registered if that is the case.

To ensure we offer safe, fun, quality coaching that follows England Hockey and Government COVID-19 advice, the Summer Hockey Programme will run for 1 hour a week with a maximum of 30 players in a group and on a similar basis to training before Christmas. Players will be asked to remain 2m apart from one another, not to touch equipment other than their own and not to bring kit onto the pitch (other than a water bottle).

Before attending, please ensure your child is registered in Teamo as you will need to check-in and confirm your child is COVID-19 symptom free before playing.

All players should already have completed the England Hockey Participation Agreement for OCHC. If you have not yet completed this, please do so before arriving at the first session. This must be done before playing as players will not be allowed on the pitch without this. We record completion in Teamo, if this is not showing for your child but you believe you have completed the agreement, please forward your email confirmation to ochcjuniors@gmail.com

Payment is required at time of booking. We are not able to offer part refunds for sessions not attended.
