- Hockey for boys & girls age 4 to 17
- Parents must be present during the sessions.
Imagine spending some quality time on Sunday morning with your children out on the field for a breath of fresh air while participating in a healthy and enjoyable sport. Mini Hockey is considered to be a fun and challenging sport, which requires agility, quick reflexes and teamwork. Children will not only be physically stronger, they will gain confidence in communication, understand the need for self discipline and most importantly learn to promote an environment where they can develop a good interpersonal relationship.
For a child being into sports is to tackle some challenges, learn to excel at what he does, win a game and have fun. We all have this child-like quality in us and Mini Hockey provides an opportunity for parents to reclaim their childhood by participating in the game, after all what better way to understand your child than to experience being into their own sports.
Skills & Teamwork
Mini Hockey is a modified version of conventional field hockey designed for children age 6 to 12. The training sessions provide solid foundation of basic skills and concepts, such as, passing, receiving, moving, tackling, dribbling and shooting with or without the ball. To win in field hockey, players do need quick and skilled execution of fundamental techniques fueled by intelligence and physical prowess that include proper body balance, aerobic endurance, flexibility and exceptional hand-eye coordination.
A Game For Everyone
Field hockey is a swift and skill based game. Physical size is unrelated and body contact is prohibited. Deliberate obstruction is considered a foul bound by the rules of the game. Therefore, boys/girls and men/women can play together in a mix game.
There is a good mix of different ethnic culture within the mini hockey community. Children will learn to respect others’ culture, which helps immensely in the personal development of your son/daughter and an indispensable tool in molding your child as a well-adjusted individual in the society.
Player must wear hockey shin guards, made from lightweight plastic or foam, to help reduce injury from the ball or from other players’ sticks. Although hockey is a safe sport, it is strongly recommended that players wear mouth guards to protect the teeth and mouth.
