Junior Hockey

The Canterbury Hockey Junior Competition runs throughout winter, beginning in early May and finishing in late August. The junior competition caters for players in Year 3 through to Year 8. Clubs will generally run their own Fun Sticks programme for years 1 and 2 throughout the season. The Canterbury Hockey Junior competitions are aligned to the HockeyNZ Small Sticks Strategy where all players play in their year groups, without exception, on quarter, half and full-sized fields.
