Junior Championships

England Hockey Championships banner
The Junior Championships are all about giving youngsters the opportunity to play more hockey!

Junior Club Championships

  • U14 - local leagues, with the potential for top teams to qualify for area and national finals
  • U16 - local leagues, with the potential for top teams to qualify for area and national finals
  • U18 - knockout
What are the changes for 2017/18?

  • We have added a second tier to the U14 and U16 Club Championships after feedback from clubs who wanted more competitive opportunities for their youngsters. The second tier has greater flexibility in terms of player eligibility regulations. This gives smaller clubs the chance to play more local hockey on a level playing field, aiding the development of their players and teams.
  • We have retained the U14 Development Championships, a seven-a-side competition for developing clubs.
  • The U18 competition remains unchanged although the Plate competition has been rebranded as Tier 2
