Welcome to Oxford Hawks Junior Section
Oxford Hawks is committed to providing an enjoyable, safe, child friendly environment where all young players, regardless of ability, receive quality coaching and the opportunity to enjoy playing a team sport with friends. In May 2017, we were one of the first Clubs in the country to receive the sport’s revised club accreditation – England Hockey Clubmark, confirming that we continue to be a safe, effective, child friendly environment and an organisation that follows good practice guidelines.
Oxford hockey is great, expecially for our juniors. Junior hockey at Oxford Hawks was established by current Club President Paddy Roche in 1990. Since those early days the Junior Section has grown rapidly to the 400 plus members and large group of highly committed volunteers, coaches and organisers that exists today. Hawks runs junior teams from U8s to U18s and these have achieved notable successes in competitions at all levels and age groups over recent years. Hawks also run "Hockeytots" for 2-4 year olds on Friday mornings in term time.
As part of the continuing development of the junior section, for the 2018/19 season we introduced midweek junior training sessions alongside our Sunday programme. These will be supported by the senior players within the club. Details of timings of sessions can be found here Training times. Training for the 2019/20 season starts on Sunday 8th September.
The junior section has very strong links with the senior teams and a successful policy of supporting players through junior teams and into the senior sides in the club. The Harriers and Kestrels teams are specifically focussed on the development of young players from junior hockey into the senior teams. The Men’s team that was promoted to National League last season included six players who all started playing in the junior section at Hawks.
New members are always welcome.
