Welcome back to Canterbury for Junior Hockey in 2018. We’ve been busy behind the scenes planning for the upcoming season, and we hope to see you soon in your red and blue!
There have been some changes this year to the Juniors.
U8s and U10s have been replaced by Stick 2 Hockey. Which has 3 branches
• Mini 5s for 6-8 yr olds played on 1/8th turf

Our Stick2Hockey program focuses on foundation skill development in a fun-filled environment.
The Stick2Hockey roster runs every school term for 5 weeks.
We offer training sessions Wednesdays 5pm to 6pm and games are on a Saturday afternoon.

Canterbury are proud to be able to offer training to our Stick 2 Hockey members.
Training for Terms 2-4 will be on Tuesday night between 5pm-6pm for the weeks of the roster. ie; starting the Tuesday night before the first game.
Kids will need their mouth guards, gear and drink bottle; and their uniform.
There has been a change to the minimum age that a child can join the competition.
This has come from Hockey Tasmania, and is due to safety concerns.
Children may join the competitions when they turn six.
The club is happy to have these children join us for training, or at our Junior Development Program while they wait for their birthdays.
Bring a Friend
Friends make hockey even more fun 🙂
Canterbury is happy to welcome new kids to our Junior Development Program, and for the upcoming season.
Please let us know about your plans for playing in the Term 1 roster.
