Game

The teams play on an approximately 3/4 size field with 9 players on the field at a time. (No Goal Keeper).

The games are 2 halves of 20 minutes each with a 5 minute break at half time. No score is kept for the games and there is not a ladder.

Players will need a hockey stick, mouthguard and shin pads. Normal running shoes are suitable.

Teams

Teams are typically mixed boys and girls formed from children registered to play with YMCC.

Where preferred, teams may be school based, or if not preferred, mixed school YMCC teams.

Teams will typically wear YMCC uniform, or, if preferred a school uniform.

School based teams must appoint a team coach and manager who will liaise with the J 3/4 Coordinator (Paul Bignell). YMCC can offer assistance in coaching with training plans if required.

Each team will receive at the beginning of the season a bag of balls, bibs and cones. These must be returned to the J 3/4 Coordinator at the end of the season.

 

School Coordinators

Each school entering a team in the J 1/2 (or the J3/4) completion should have a coordinator (volunteers please, let Paul Bignell know if interested) to answer any questions that the parents may have. They will be responsible for organizing the teams and appointing a coach and manager. All players must be registered through the YMCC Hockey Club website.

 

Team Training

Default Training for YMCC J3/4 Teams is Wednesday, 5pm at Perry Lakes starting from 17th April (following the group sessions). Individual teams, however, are welcome to select a time, day, or location which suits them. Typically many of the school based teams will train at their school, before or after the school day, however they are welcome at Perry Lakes too.

In cases where team training time does not suit, children are always welcome to come and train with one of the mixed YMCC teams. Check with Paul Bignell for info on when these teams are training.

The first game of the season is Saturday 11th May and weekly thereafter until 17th August.
