Hockey for boys and girls aged 6-10
Firebrands under 10s is open for children (both girls and boys) aged 6, 7, 8, 9 and those who turn 10 during their school year.
Whether your child has played before, or wants to pick up a stick for the very first time, we can offer the environment for them to have FUN while also learning and making friends.
Whether your child is a complete beginner, or has already been playing for a few years, we have experience, knowledge and coaches available to help them flourish.
In addition to training we often run, and participate in friendly game tournaments, either at our home pitch or other locations across Bristol. These are available to all children in the age group.
What do we want your children to get out of playing hockey at Firebrands?
First and foremost, we want them to have fun. That is the single most important thing, especially at this age. Secondly, they will get plenty of touches of the ball and coaching. No child will ever be left out in cold, not touching the ball or getting involved.
Our junior philosophy is simply; FUN, while playing lots of hockey.
Please keep scrolling down for our training timetable, as well as some more information about our coaches.
