Now in its 18th year Ballymena Hockey’s Mini and Junior section continues to grow in strength and numbers!
Last season the Club had over 300 youth members from Primary 1 to Year 11, supported by a dedicated team of coaches who are committed to providing the best hockey experience for all our ‘Stars of the Future’
As well as weekly coaching sessions, the Club participates in Ulster Hockey’s ‘blitz’ tournaments, with teams taking part at U-11, U-13 and U15 age groups.
Great success was enjoyed by both U11 and U13 teams at the Finals day at Lisnagarvey HC in March this year.
The season was rounded off with Ballymena’s own youth tournament in April with 12 Ballymena teams being joined by teams from Coleraine, Larne, Owls and Rainey hockey clubs.
Michelin Plc continues to support the work of the Club’s youth section and this is invaluable in providing top class facilities and equipment to all our younger members.
Finally, watch out for our new Boy’s hockey sessions starting in September 2017 for P5 to Year 11’s as we aim to increase participation throughout the local area.
