Welcome to our Junior page!
Huge congrats to :
Our U10s who played brilliantly to finish Runners Up in their Regional Finals (qualifying as County Champions). A penalty flick end the final is a heart breaking way to lose though!
and our U12s who played some superb hockey in their Regional Final, including winning a penalty shoot out, but didnt finish in the medals this time, but coach David Hill says the girls ended the day with smiles and gained valuable experience.
Our U18s played the Ladies Welsh Masters, winning 4-1:
LIV BACK who not only represented England U18s this weekend, but scored a cracking goal too.

OLIVIA BACK SELECTED FOR THE ENGLAND U18 SQUAD! WELL DONE LIV!
We run a successful, friendly and thriving Junior section, with around 90 girls on the current membership. We are England Hockey ClubsFirst Accredited - which means that we are proven to be running a "safe, effective and child friendly" club environment. Our coaches are made up from Senior players (several Internationals!), and several other experienced, well-qualified EH coaches. All coaches and junior helpers have been DBS checked.
COMING SOON: WATCH THIS SPACE FOR NEW 2017/18 JUNIOR TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT.
The club currently runs five age group teams: U10, U12, U14, U16 and U18.
The U10 and U12 teams train, like all of our teams, at Leicester Grammar School and enter local club competitions along with the England Hockey In2Hockey Competitions. Any children from the age of 6 up to 12 can attend this age group training.
The U14, U16 and U18 teams have their age group training on selected dates at Leicester Grammar School on the waterbase pitch. All three teams play in the England Hockey National Age Group Championship Competitions and the U16 and U18 teams both also play in the England Hockey National Indoor Competition.
All girls, once they are 13 can also train with the ladies on a Wednesday / Monday evening and become involved with our Senior teams. Most players take this route with their hockey progression. This way girls can gain valuable training and match time with the more mature, experienced players: a valuable resource here at Leicester Ladies!
Our juniors also gain success in the England Hockey Single System, with many representing their County, and also going on through the system to International level.
Our successful U14s
