Our coaching promise

When coaching our junior players, we adapt some guidelines in order “To Develop Creative Potential Within Each Child”. These conditions are set by the late German Horst Wein, one of worlds inspiring hockey coaches. We have created some core values that we think are important in the development of your chikd(ren).

8) TRAIN THE RIGHT HEMISPHERE OF THE BRAIN

Instead of the coach being the main character in the teaching and learning process, he should often transfer responsibility to his young pupils and ask them, through systematic questioning, to solve most of the situations that he presents. A true master in teaching never gives the answers to the problems, but helps his pupils to find and discover them on their own, guiding them to correct results.

Season 2017-2018

Welcome back everyone, and a big welcome to new members. Below is some important information about the club

  • Membership fee is €70 for the first child and €60 per child thereafter, to a maximum of €170. For insurance reasons any child who is not registered and has not paid will not be allowed to play.
  • Please make sure that your email address and phone numbers are written clearly on the form.

 

  • ‘What’s app’ is used to pass information to parents, please download this app to your phone. A general group has been established for club notices as well as individual threads for each age group to arrange blitzes etc. Please reply promptly when requested on the appropriate group.
  • Volunteers are always needed to help with supervision, fundraising and coaching. Please let Vicky know if you can help in any way (086 8810175)

 

  • Please ensure your child wears shin guards and their gum shield to all sessions.
  • For health and safety please collect your child from their coach promptly at the end of their session. During sessions we advise that younger siblings do not wait/play on the sidelines as they will not be covered by insurance should injury occur.

 

  • Blitzes will be arranged throughout the year for each age group and you will be notified by your child's coach. Participation is encouraged as this is a great opportunity to play on an official hockey pitch.
  • Club colours must be worn at blitzes; red polo shirt (available now in Dunnes Stores and Funges), navy shorts/skirt/tracksuit bottoms and red socks.

 

  • Any old hockey sticks would be appreciated for club use.
