Juniors

Welcome to WASP’s Junior Hockey Club

We are a large junior club catering for players of all abilities ranging from beginners to those who play in state and national teams.

We have teams for kids in pre primary through to year 12 at school.

Our Minkey program is played on a Saturday morning at Richardson Park. It is designed for the younger kids from pre primary through to Year 2. Played witih smaller teams, modified rules and on a quarter field, this is ideal for the younger players and those just beginning.

Grads is the next step for kids in Year 3 and 4, and plays alongside Minkey. The game is extended to teams of 11 on a full field with more of the basic rules of hockey applied. This is an important stepping stone to playing in the junior HockeyWA competitions in following years.

When players are in Year 5 and above at school, they join our teams competing in HockeyWA competitions. These are played against other clubs in the metropolitan area on a home and away basis. Games are played under the offical rules of hockey.

The age groups for HockeyWA competitions are based on the players year at school. The competitions and general playing times are

Year 5/6 – Saturday morning
Year 7/8 – Saturday morning
Year 9/10 – Sunday morning
Year 11/12 – Friday evening
