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 Hockey NZ Small Sticks Strategy where all players play in their year groups, on quarter, half and full-sized fields.
