Mini Hockey


Our ethos is to encourage as many children to enjoy hockey and team sport as possible, engendering an interest that will last a life time. Whatever the ability of the child there is a place for them at Old Loughts. As coaches and managers, our desire is to encourage and support them as they develop not only their hockey skills but also social skills.

Our Mini section (School Year 1-7) is run by volunteers, many of whom are parents of children currently attending or have had children at the club previously. All have busy home and work lives but still find time to commit regularly to training, matches and all else that goes hand in hand with this.

Mini Coaches / Managers

On a regular Saturday there will be between 12 – 15 Adult coaches/helpers and 6-8 U14/U16 Junior helpers. They give regular commitment which helps all children access enjoyable sessions.

As an England Hockey affiliated club we have an England Hockey Sessional Coach (old Level 2) on site during training sessions. We are fortunate that both Jay Fox and John Wright both fulfil this obligation. They, along with Chris Gladman (Director of Coaching at Old Loughts) coordinate the sessions on each of the pitches and provide guidance on which aspects each age group needs to focus on.

Mini teams

We run 2 Mixed U8's, 2 Girls and 2 Boys U10’s and 2 Girls and 2 Boys U12 teams.

All Mini’s within these age groups will have a chance to play in matches. We run A teams which are selected on ability by the coaches and B teams where all are welcome and everyone will have the opportunity to play. Whether you have just picked up a stick for the first time or are aspiring to make the national finals you are more than welcome.

Sponsorship We are very fortunate to benefit from the generous support of Higgins Group Plc. Higgins Group Plc is one of the largest family-owned construction companies in South East England. It was formed as the parent company of the Higgins Group of Companies in 1989. The Higgins Group moved to their prestigious new offices at One, Langston Road in May 2005. The development and success of the club would not have been possible without the long term and continuing commitment of the company to our club as its principal sponsor.

It is important that the club continues to attract additional support and sponsorship. We welcome all levels of support and potential bespoke packages are available to interested parties.

We welcome local sponsors in particular as well as national and international sponsors especially those with an interest in hockey.
