More details will be available nearer to the first date, but we hope that your son or daughter will want to take part.  We will also need help with transport for our away festivals.

These festivals give the younger players a taster of playing in a match situation, although the emphasis is very much on having fun!





This year we are running two sessions a week for the minis:-

  • Wednesday 5.30 – 7pm for 8-16yr olds starts 12th September

  • Sunday 10.30 - 11.30am for 6-11yr olds starts 16th September

The 2007 training sessions will run each week as follows:


WEDNESDAY - 12th September to 17th October

                      No training on 24th October

                      31st October to 12th December


SUNDAY -        16th September to 14th October

                       No training on 21st and 28th October

                       4th November to 16th December


Dates for 2008 will be published nearer the time.


New Mini Hockey membership forms will shortly be available to download from this section, or they can be picked up in the Sports Club Reception.


The total cost for the year is 40 per child.  There may be a small additional fee to pay if they play in a match.


First time attendees may attend their first session free of charge, in order to give it a try. Thereafter it is essential that you complete a membership form (and pay the subscription fee), as we must have contact and medical details.  You can download a membership form here


It is very important that your child registers on arrival at the pitch, and that you, as a parent or guardian collects your child afterwards pitch side.


In the event of poor weather, we will try to continue where possible, but please contact the Sports Club, if you are in any doubt, on 01342 321210


We look forward to giving your children a taste of hockey and developing their skills, whilst you can watch or enjoy a coffee and a read of the newspapers in the clubhouse!

Mini Festival - Sunday 10th December

East Grinstead hosted this festival which included teams from Purley Walcountians, Horsham and Old Mid Whitgiftians.


The ages of the children ranged from 6 – 11 years, some playing in their first ever ‘match’!  Five teams competed at U9 mixed level and seven teams played as U11 Boys and U11 Girls.


The event nearly didn’t take place as the pitches were frozen solid at 9am.  However after an hour’s delay, the sun started to defrost the pitch and we were able to start, and although delayed with the schedule, we were able to catch up a little, as the morning progressed.


There were some great moments – with teams playing in a fantastic spirit, enjoyment and fun being the aim of the day.


The children finished tired but happy at 12pm.  There was then a small presentation for the winners.
