Mini hockey gives kids a fun and enjoyable experience, whilst learning and improving their skills for the game. We provide coaching which caters for all levels of ability and combines the services of our professional coaches along with a number of experienced parent volunteer coaches.
They take part in a number of mixed hockey tournaments throughout the season and are often very successful.
Our Youth teams are open to both HKFC members and non-members, and act as the bridge from Mini to Senior hockey within HKFC. Our Youth coaching develops player fitness and builds on the skill levels gained at Mini level. As with the minis, we have both professional and parent volunteer coaches taking the training sessions.
REMINDER all children MUST wear mouth guards and shin guards to training and tournaments, along with correct playing kit and footwear.
Simon Chapman, HKFC Director of hockey, has been heavily involved in creating and developing a Youth Player Pathway to nurture talented juniors towards the Senior Section teams. Selected youth players also have the opportunity to represent either the boys or girls HKFC Youth squads in the HKHA Youth League competitions. Both squads won their respective League and Cup competitions in the 2015/16 season.
In July 2016, the boys and girls U16 squads went on tour to Perth, where they faced opposition unlike any other they have come up against in Hong Kong! Find out more about the tour in their Tour Report.
