Welcome to the Junior Section of

Gillingham Anchorians Hockey Club

The junior section is a vital part of the club dedicated to the next generation of hockey players where we endeavour to develop not only their hockey skills but also agility, balance, coordination, discipline, fitness and teamwork. Parents and guardians are also very welcome to stay and watch or even take part... you never know, you might just enjoy yourselves!

We are lucky enough to have excellent facilities with a club house right next to the pitch with all the facilities needed to make it a secure environment for your children. Coaching is run by Nigel McDonald and Mel Young. Our coaches are all qualified and fully DBS (the new CRB) checked. Please feel free to contact us using the contact from on this site or anchoriansjhc@gmail.com.

Currently we run under 8's and under 10's mixed hockey teams. We also run an under 12's and 14's team for both boys and girls. We currently run training sessions for year R and above.

Your first session is free after which we charge £2 per session. We provide sticks and balls and goal-keeping equipment and ask that you wear trainers or astro shoes with good grip, shin pads and suitable clothing for training outdoors in the autumn and winter. England Hockey also recommend the use of mouth guards (gum shields).

Gillingham Anchorians HC supports the England Hockey Single System for player, coach and officials development. For further details of the Single System, please follow the link below to the England Hockey website:
