Hockey is fun for all ages.
Newtown City Hockey Club offers a ‘Joeys’ program for boys and girls turning 4, 5 and 6 years old. The program is aimed at children who like playing around with a hockey stick and ball but are a bit young to concentrate on an organised match and strict rules.
It’s a great way for children to learn the basic skills of hockey, with a focus on fun and small games, without organised matches. The program has proven to be a great preparation for future participation in a Minkey (mini-Hockey) team.
The program is conducted at Lloyd Reserve from 10 to 10.30 am each Saturday, from April to August.
Players should wear comfortable clothing and shoes to run in. Hockey sticks are available for loan initially. Players may choose to purchase their own equipment with packages available which include a hockey stick, ball and shinguards.
Uniform is not required. Each player will be given a tee-shirt to wear, and this is included in the fees charged.
Registration for this program provides cover for Public Liability and Personal Accident insurance.
