Newcomers to the club are welcome to join us for a 3 week free trial period during which time their skills are assessed before allocating them to a coaching group. As well as training there may be the opportunity to play in one of our many teams playing matches home and away against other clubs. We have teams competing in leagues for under 10 boys and girls (mixed), under 12 girls, under 12 boys, under 14 girls and under 14 boys . We also take part in the Under 16 Mixed League. The climax to the season for the U10s and U12s is the Cornwall County Championships. The Winners and Runners-Up in each section go on to represent Cornwall in the West Regional Finals in Bristol. Last season all four of our teams qualified.
As well as welcoming new members we are looking for coaches or experienced players to join our coaching team and volunteers to help run the club.

What does my child need?
The main thing your child will need is a gum shield and shin pads, which are mandatory. Astro turf shoes are recommended and your own stick is preferable but if you don't have one, ask us and we may be able to lend one on a temporary basis. Base layers in the winter are recommended as it can get cold. We train in all weather conditions and don't mind a bit of rain! Protective hockey gloves can be worn and can help prevent scraped knuckles. Then the usual - shorts/skirt/skort, tracksuit bottoms can be worn if needed, a waterproof jacket/hoodie. Baseball caps and sunglasses can't be worn during the sessions. Bring a drink - hockey is a fast paced game and can be thirsty work.
