Our junior teams are run by a team of dedicated parents, with teams for children in Year 1-8, and all ability levels. Our teams play in the Auckland Hockey Junior Competition, with games on Saturday mornings during May-September.
Fun Sticks (Year 1-2)
The Fun Sticks competition aims to introduce kids to hockey with an emphasis on having fun while developing fundamental skills. Teams have 6-10 players, with games played on 1/8-size hockey turfs.
Mini Sticks (Year 3-4)
Mini Sticks games are played between teams of 6-10 players on 1/4-size hockey turfs.
Kiwi Sticks (Year 5-6)
Kiwi Sticks games are played between teams of 7-10 players on 1/2-size hockey turfs with a standard goal.
Kwik Sticks (Year 7-8)
The Kwik Sticks competition is split into Development and Premier/Experienced grades. Development grade games are 6-a-side, and played on 1/2-size hockey turfs, while Premier/Experienced-level games are 11-a-side and played on full-size hockey turfs.
From October-December, we enter teams in the Auckland Hockey Summer Competition at Lloyd Elsmore Park, with games played on weekday evenings. This is a great opportunity for kids to pick up the game in a more social environment, or to keep up their skills over summer.
