U12 girls training starts this Sunday 8th September

Welcome to the start of the new hockey season! The coaching team have some exciting plans for making sure all our girls have a really fun season and get to play as much competitive hockey as possible. Training for the under 12 girls starts this Sunday 8th September 9:15-11:00 am at Bar End, Winchester Sports Stadium, Milland Road, Highcliffe, SO23 0QA.

KIT

Please make sure that all girls come with a mouthguard and shin pads - no girl will be able to play without these for safety reasons. Please could they also bring along a hockey stick and water. Girls should attend in their Winchester Hockey Club kit or, if their kit has not yet been delivered, a plain white or yellow t-shirt and dark shorts/skort.

If you still need to order kit please do so as soon as you can as delivery can take a while and girls will need official kit to be able to play in matches. Order online here.

Parking and directions

Unfortunately, there is no parking allowed at the Winchester Sports Stadium and parking on the nearby residential streets is strongly discouraged. Ample parking is available at the Barfield Park and Ride site (SO23 9SQ), located close to the Stadium off Bar End Road. Pedestrian access to the Winchester Sports Stadium is by a pathway through the Garrison Ground Playing Fields by the Bar End road. Please follow the signage on the hoarding and allow 10 minutes to walk from the Park and Ride to the all weather pitch which is north of the athletics track.

Please note that our main form of communication is via email and the website (www.winchesterhc.co.uk/u12-girls). During the season it is important that you keep an eye on the website for the latest updates on the training sessions and details about forthcoming matches.

We are really excited about the forthcoming season and look forward to meeting you all on Sunday!
