Age Group Coordinator and Fixtures – Jo Malden 07557 056179 or 01865 556422 (evenings)

Lead coach – Pushpa Chaure 01865 769650

Training: Sundays 9.30-10.45am and Tuesdays 6-7pm at Oxford Brookes (please note that sessions only run during the hockey season – see our key dates for details of start/finish dates and any breaks for half-term, etc)

Matches: we enter teams in this age group into 4 or 5 hockey festivals throughout the season. Games are 5-a-side or 7-a-side.  We will normally only play Year 2/3 in matches as usually the younger children are not ready for competitive games.

Under 8s training sessions are mixed sessions, with girls and boys training and playing together. We don’t have a formal lower age limit – it depends on when the individual child is confident enough to join in with the activities (typically, our youngest members are aged 5).
