School Years: Year 12, Year 13
Gender: Boys & Girls separate
Our Under 18 age group is for boys & girls in school years 12 and 13.
At Under 18 players mix much closer with adult team. They will be allocated to one of the adult squads at the beginning of the season and train with them.
They will also come back together as an age group team to play in the South East Area Junior League system and take part in the England Hockey Club Championships Cup tournament. These two competitions give at least (depending on cup success) 10 matches per year.
As well as training with, they will also be eligible for adult team hockey matches on Saturday. Selection for these teams will follow the selection criteria of the relevant adult team and can be discussed with the team captain.
The hockey season is 27 weeks from the beginning of September to Easter, with breaks in the 3 school holidays in between. All training and matches outlined are included in membership.
£26 from each membership subscription is paid to the East Grinstead Sports Club charity, to maintain the site and build a fund of money to eventually replace the hockey pitch they rent back to us for our programs.
