Vic Park Junior Program

Victoria Park Hockey Club provides opportunities for children to participate in all levels of junior hockey from 5 to 18 years of age. Junior grades are based on a player's year at school. There are a number of teams in each age group, allowing us to cater for all levels of experience from beginner to state level players.

The club depends on volunteers and appreciates, and expects, the involvement and support of parents at every level from administration, coaching and umpiring to canteen duty. Many lifelong friendships - between parents as well as players - have begun at Vic Park Junior hockey.

Minkey (Hookin2hockey)

Minkey is a modified hockey game for players from Kindergarten to year 3.  It is played on a smaller field with 6 players in each team. It focuses on participation and skill development in a fun, game based environment. As far as possible, children are placed in teams with friends (where requested) or players from the same school. 

All players require a hockey stick, shin pads and mouthguard. Stick packs may be ordered at registration or by contacting the Minkey coordinator.

Sessions run for an hour on a Saturday morning at the club - Fletcher Park, Weston Street, Carlisle - from 8.30am. There are usually 14 sessions in the season which commences on the first Saturday of term 2 and runs through to September. No sessions are held on long weekends or school holidays.

Grads

Grads is designed for young players in year 4 (or experienced year 3 players) as an introduction to formal competition. It is also a great entry level into hockey. 

It is played on a half pitch with modified rules and is run for an hour on a Saturday morning at the club - Fletcher Park, Weston Street, Carlisle - from 8:30am. Training sessions, whilst not compulsory, may be held on a Wednesday night from 5-6pm at Fletcher Park. All players require a hockey stick, shin pads and mouth guard.

Juniors

The ‘Junior’ competition is for players from year 5 at school to year 12. Players are placed in a grade according to their year group not age. (e.g. J5/6 is for players in year five and year 6 at school). 

Years 5/6 and 7/8 teams all play on Saturday mornings at various venues. 

Year 9/10 play on Sunday mornings.

Games are held on a home and away basis, so each team will have some games at Fletcher Park, some at the opposition team’s home ground as well as turf games when allocated. 

Years 11/12 A and A reserve play Friday nights on turf venues and all other 11/12 grades play most games  Friday nights on turf with some Sunday morning games on grass.

J11/12 A and A reserve teams will have one turf training session each week at Perth Hockey Stadium, times to be confirmed. 

Indoor Hockey

The junior indoor hockey season run by Hockey WA usually runs for 8 weeks through November and December each year with a separate 2 day club championship held in the October school holidays. Vic Park Hockey has previously entered J7/8, J9/10 and J11/12 girls and boys teams.

Indoor hockey is a great way to sharpen up your skills by playing fast paced games in a small space with only 5 field players and a goalie on the court at one time.  To register a team you will need approx 6-8 field players and a goalie, plus a coach, manager and indoor umpire.

Keep this in mind for the end of winter season.
