About Junior Hockey

Wanderers’ junior hockey has built a strong reputation over many years, of offering professional coaching in a safe, fun environment for players.

Junior hockey spaces will again be limited (dependent on session numbers), in order for us to manage the use of the astroturf and the allocation of coaches. Players that played last year will be given preference, then their siblings and thereafter on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis.

As usual, the highlights of the season will no doubt be the tournaments, which the kids always enjoy. Our own Wanderers tournament should again be special, with there likely to be more than 1,000 players attending like last year.

Shin pads   NB!!!!

Shoes with grip (NB: no soccer boots allowed on the astro)
