Welcome to our Club. We are sure that you will have a great time as have those who have gone before. Please look around the clubhouse and the grounds. Have a cup of tea or coffee; relax and read the news-paper, chat or join your child on the pitch and learn with them. The beverages are free (donated by Club members), all we ask is that you offer to make a cuppa for others. Our Club is run by parents. We have done everything we can to make the Club a great place to be. You will find everyone friendly and welcoming; this is a place for you and your children to relax and enjoy. If you need something and you can’t find it, just ask, someone will know or will arrange it for you. Rob

Coaching & Training

Beginning the first Sunday of September, training sessions take place every week through until April. U8s train from 10am until 11am and U10s train between 10am and 12pm. U12s and above train between 11am and 1pm. These players are more than welcome to join in on the younger player’s sessions as an umpire, support coach, or helper.

Membership

Subscriptions are due after your first 6 weeks.

First member £60.00

Siblings £40.00

We believe that money should not be a barrier to enjoying hockey. If payment of fees is a concern, please speak in confidence to the Chairman.

Matches

Plymouth HC competes in leagues in Plymouth and Devon at all ages. The Club also enters the Plymouth adult mixed Summer League (13+)’. Match fees of £2-3 may be charged to cover pitch hire.

Entry to these competitions is entirely dependent on volunteer support. Each team must have a coach to ‘play’ the team; a manager to administer the team and an umpire.

Clothing

The wearing of shin guards by all players is compulsory in hockey. The use of gum shields is left to the discretion of parents, but are strongly advised. Protective gloves are available on the internet. Players should consider a black long-sleeve skin-type top to be worn under their playing shirt.

Coaches: Black ‘PHC Coach’ jacket.

Training: Relaxed.

The end of season party is Laser Quest and is held at the Skirmish Paintball centre in Stoke Wood, Exeter EX4 5BW on Saturday 27th April 2019. We have a special dispensation regarding age so that everyone can take part. We welcome friends and family. Food can be purchased on site or you can bring a picnic.

Volunteering

Could you be a coach or an umpire? Would you like to try? Well, this is the place. You can start today by working alongside an established experienced coach or umpire. Our club is run entirely by volunteers and self-financing, so it is essential that club members, parents and friends step forward to fill roles on the committee, as team managers and coaches. Volunteers need not have previous experience; the Club will provide and fund all the training needed.
