Summer Hockey Timetable 2024

Please note, U10s includes U9s and U10s, U12s includes U11s and U12s etc.


Friday Free Play – How It Works

Available exclusively to those who have paid for a Summer Hockey membership, these sessions will be unstructured supervised hockey sessions, with the pitch split U10s-U12s and U14s-U16s. The sessions will be supervised by OCHC volunteer Junior coaches (who lead and support training sessions during the season) and it’s essential you sign up on Teamo every time you wish to attend so that we can plan the correct number of coaches. If your availability changes, please do update Teamo to release the space for another player. We will be taking a register at every session and spaces will be limited to 50 players per session. For safety reasons, we have had to limit this to players in U10s and above.

Specialist Goalkeeper Training

In addition to goalkeepers training with their age groups during the summer programme, we are delighted to have Dave Sharp, Goalkeeping Specialist, joining us to host 4 weeks of Goalkeeper specific training within the Summer Hockey Programme:

Monday 15 April, Monday 29 April, Monday 13 May, Monday 10 June

U8 – U12  5:30-6:30pm on dates above

U14 – U18 6:30-7:30pm on dates above

Players are also welcome to attend their age group sessions during those weeks if they wish but we appreciate this may not always be practical (and the GK sessions will overlap with some sessions).

Dave Sharp has been coaching hockey teams for over 30 years and goalkeepers since 2013. He’s a full time coach, alongside consultant roles for England Hockey and Hockey Wales National Age Group programmes. Dave believes “goalkeeping is a unique position within a team and requires the additional focus to deliver the highest level of performance, whilst enjoying the playing and training experience”.

How to sign up to Summer Hockey

Summer Hockey membership is available to purchase through your Teamo account.

Please click on the link below to watch a short video on how to find payments in your Teamo account (note, that whilst it says ‘find outstanding payments’, this is an entirely optional additional purchase but will show as available to all members). As shown in the video, when you have selected ‘summer hockey membership’ in payments and you are presented with the list of age groups to select from, this is a scrollable list so please do scroll down until you find the correct team. This will then add you to the relevant age group Summer Hockey team and you’ll see the sessions appear in your Teamo calendar. Remember, the Friday night Free Play sessions will be visible to all U10-U16 members who have signed up but you need to tick you’re attending to book your space in these sessions each week.
