Hockey Academy Under 10’s
U10 Co-coordinator is Alex Banbury : firstname.lastname@example.org
At U10 level, we welcome novices and more experienced players both from our U8’s or those already playing at school.
Whilst continuing to focus on basic skills we introduce an element of team hockey and enter local 7 a side, half pitch, mixed festivals. As well as developing technical hockey skills, we also encourage team spirit, responsibility and commitment.
At festivals, selected players will be wearing club colours and officially representing Westbury and United Banks Hockey Club. This is the start of their Club hockey journey!
