Juniors are the lifeblood of any sporting organisation and Hockey Burleigh is not different. We welcome all juniors whether they are experienced hockey players or brand new to the game. Our Junior program has produced many state and Australian representatives and continues to promote a healthy friendly environment at club level for all young players. Every age group in the Hockey Gold Coast Association has at least one team wearing the Hockey Burleigh colours. Open Junior boys and girls, Under 14 Girls, Under 14 Boys, U12 Mixed and Joeys divisions so there is a team for everyone.
Joeys is the starting point for young junior players new to the game. This is a fun activity based program designed to introduce children as young as 5 to hockey.
Joeys is not an age based program but in general participants are 5 to 9years of age. Participants will be assessed on ability and coached accordingly.
To make things easier for Burleigh based families, Hockey Burleigh has bought program closer to our traditional geographic base at Burleigh and as such have arranged to run our Joeys sessions from 4pm on Wednesdays at Gold Coast Indoor Sports Centre in Burleigh.
As players progress through the Joeys program they will advance into the Joeys Saturday’ program which builds on the skills learned and prepares players for games.
Our Joeys also get the opportunity to play real games on Saturday mornings at the state of the art Commonwealth Games facility of Gold Coast Hockey association at Hunt Park Labrador. These modified rules non competitive games have the kids playing kids from other clubs in the area whilst honing their skills.
