Why LHC Colts?
A LOVE FOR HOCKEY NEEDS TO START SOMEWHERE! AT LHC, WE BELIEVE THE YOUNGER THE BETTER!
Our youngest members first pick up a hockey stick from the age of 7* and continue playing as a LHC colt until they reach 14. Over these 7 years, our colts are coached by England Hockey qualified coaches to give them all the technique and game skills they need to move up to the seniors when ready.
Designed to be fun, engaging and educational, our sessions make sure your children have the best introduction to hockey. Each training session starts with a warm up. We then spend time on technical skills before finishing the session with game play.
Our sessions are mixed, and are open to all abilities.
*must be 7 years old on September 1st to start playing in the new season
Things to know before your first session:
We appreciate that sometimes you prefer the option to 'try before you buy' so we have hockey sticks available for use until your children find their feet. Existing members must come equipped with shin-pads and gum-shields. For new members, or those wishing to try a session, shin-pads are required but gum shields are optional for the first couple of weeks. All children should bring water/soft drinks (not fizzy!)
Please ensure children come appropriately attired - no jewellery, appropriate sports clothing and layers to allow for changes in weather including waterproofs, especially as Autumn/Winter progresses - we DO play in the rain!
