The youth section of Ballymena Hockey Club caters for children from ages 5 to 14, after which they transfer to the senior section. The younger age groups are introduced to hockey in a fun and imaginative way, progressing to the development of specific hockey skills and tactics as they increase in age, experience and ability. There are competitive opportunities for most age groups playing in inter-club mini leagues.
Our qualified coaches are trained in child protection and have been screened for their suitability for working with young people. These regular coaches supervise all coaching and are all volunteers who receive no payment for all their time and expertise.
We welcome parents to all training and competitions and value your support. We are keen to try and involve parents in the club and you can find out more about the club from this website, our regular emails and our coaches.
