The Hawthorn Junior Hockey Club was founded in 1978 by Bruce Kidd, Robin Hodder, Jack Grimshaw, Bill Hutchinson, David Vial and Ross Quick. In a short time the club has grown to be one of the major forces in junior hockey.

The juniors attempt to offer an opportunity to players of all standards throughout all the age groups and beginners are welcome at all age groups.

Juniors – Season 2019

This year, the junior playing fixture starts on the weekend of 3 May 2019.   This is after Term 1 holidays, Easter and ANZAC Day.  First games are Friday 3rd May 2019 for Under 14s and Under 16s and Saturday 4th May 2019 for Under 10s and Under 12s.In line with this, junior training will start in the week commencing Monday 11 February 2019.

Team App

As a general rule, we are trying to avoid sending you regular emails as a communication mechanism in 2019.  Instead, we will continue to use Team App for club and team messages, fixture and selection information.

Please make sure that you have checked the correct age group registration and requested access to any new age groups in Team App.  Likewise, leave any age group that you are no longer associated with to minimise the number of Team App notifications you receive.

Please feel free to email myself, your year level co-ordinator or your team manager if ever you have a question or concern.

For access, please download via your phone (App Store, Google Play) or https://www.TeamApp.com. Once downloaded, search for Hawthorn Hockey Club and request access.

Registration Procedures

As with previous years, everyone is required to register with both Hockey Victoria
(HV) and Hawthorn. However, due to insurance policies with Hockey Victoria, it is mandatory that all players have registered with HV before commencing training.  HV registration can be done online here.

HHC Registrations will be available shortly, however once available, please register as soon as possible, to allow the committee to enter the right number of teams into HV competitions.
For further details regarding registration, see the Registration page.

Parental Support

In order for our Junior Hockey club to function, we need the support of parents
to act as Team Managers, whose role it is to liaise with the team regarding game
times and location, the organisation of oranges and snakes and the submission of
team lists and match results.
Whilst the committee is very happy to help you (in particular) with the online
submission of results, we NEED your help to run your children’s teams
efficiently.

If you have any questions regarding the above or any other aspect of the season
that is not answered on our website https://hawthornhockeyclub.asn.au , please
speak to a committee member at training or myself.
Our contact emails are all listed on the website under ‘Contacts’.
All the best for the season.

Mike Walters
