Under Fourteen Hockey
Under Fourteen hockey open to all players!
Our Under Fourteen programme offers players weekly hockey across the year, whatever their ability or background, for some of the lowest membership fees in Scottish Hockey.
Twice weekly training sessions
Matches once a fortnight
Everyone is welcome
Training Methods: Focus is put on learning through situations that are as game-like possible.
Game Play: Players will work on winning the ball back, attacking situations and developing match tactics.
Technical Skills: Players will work on moving with the ball, receiving the ball, evading defenders and passing.
Physical Skills: Players will work on basic agility and co-ordination,
Soft Skills: Players will work on the traits of being self-organised and self-aware. We also encourage all players to consider the behaviours of listening to and speaking to everyone.
A theme for all content is ‘our way’ of playing hockey, where the focus is on being attack minded.
