Welcome to Bowdon Hockey Juniors!
We welcome children from age 4-18 to our section and are proud to see so many boys and girls enjoying their hockey! We now have around 440 junior members with around half primary age and half of secondary age. Learn a little more about our ‘Bowdon Hockey Journey here.
In the 2019-20 season, our Junior teams achieved unprecedented participation and success, including:
60+ players playing regular Saturday junior team hockey
TEN Junior teams playing in England Hockey Cup Competitions, with our Girls U18 T1, Girls U16 T1, Girls U14 T2 and Boys U14 T1 reaching the Area Finals
THREE U12 teams playing in Cheshire Cup competition
MORE THAN 65 players taking part in the Greater Manchester Hockey League, at U10, U11, U13 and U15 age groups. Well done to our U15 mixed team for winning their league and U13 Girls A team finishing runners-up
Althought there is still much uncertainty, we are hopeful of a relatively normal return to the new hockey season from September. Current plans will be:
Greater Manchester Junior Hockey league
Entering again from U10 – U15, these tournaments take place on Sunday afternoons, with the commitment for each age group approximately once per month. We do all we can to give equal access to play for U10 and U11 age groups, and for U13 and U15, will aim to offer priority to Juniors with less experience or who are not yet playing as much regular hockey. This is all very dependent on parental support for co-ordinating and helping to manage the teams, however.
Saturday Cheshire Consortium League (Badgers and Beavers)
Our Badgers teams will be for players age 12-14 and Beavers will be for age 10-13, playing in leagues across the Cheshire region. This year, we have one all-boys and one mixed Badgers team. There will also be two Beavers teams. You can see the fixtures dates here: https://cheshire.leaguerepublic.com/l/index.html
In addition, we have entered national England Hockey Cup competitions across all age groups U8, U10, U12 and U14 teams into some Crewe Hockey Club friendly tournaments and will aim to set up friendlies for our Year 7s with other local clubs.
We will update this page with further information about the 2020/21 season over coming weeks, so do bookmark and stay in touch.
