Summer hockey is a great way for kids to get started in hockey. Games are held on Monday afternoons / evenings at Waitakere Hockey Turf (Henderson High School). Teams are entered into the competition by local schools, or children can be registered individually for club teams.
Children play in teams according to school year (Years 1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8).
Year 1-6 teams play 30 minute games on 1/4 turf, year 7/8 play 40 minute games on 1/2 turf.
The season is run across Term 4 and Term 1 and the dates for the 2020/2021 season are as follows:
Term 4 - 2 November - 7 December
Term 1 - 15 February - 22 March
For individuals registering the cost for the 12 week programme is $30, which includes a free mouthguard. For children new to hockey (Years 1-6) who are yet to purchase any equipment we also offer a second registration option - $60 for the 12 week programme which includes a hockey starter kit containing a stick, shinguards, mouthguard and ball, thanks to support from our gear partner Freedom2Play.
Shinguards and a mouthguard are mandatory. It is also preferable children have their own stick but for those that don't the club has a small number of sticks that can be borrowed for games.
