BHC guidance and recommendation is for a parent/guardian stay to supervise your child/children during the coaching sessions.The coaches sadly do not have the capacity to supervise children needing the toilet, getting water, anything which takes them away from the pitch. A formal register is not
taken, just a rough headcount at the start of each session to aid the lesson structure.

The clubhouse doors are left open and where the club is located is open to the public. There is free WiFi and refreshments in the warm clubhouse for you to stay out of the cold and a great viewing balcony to watch the kids.

Registration Instructions for 2018/2019 Season

This season we will be managing our membership via the Belper Hockey website, in line with all other sections at Belper HC.  This will ensure we comply with the new data protection legislation. Squad managers and coaches will be able to select players from those registered on the website and notify them of their selection for games & other events. The data in the website will also be used for any general comms within Mini Hockey. For this to work we need all the children to be registered on the ClubBuzz system ideally  by 16th September 2018

Some of you may have previously registered on this database, if so you will already have received a request to re-register. Most of us in MiniHoc have never registered on this database previously and need to follow the following steps :

  1. Apply to be a member via this link - please use your child’s name and specify ‘Sport’ as ‘Mini Hockey’, but most importantly please use your parental email address as the applicants email address.  You will then be emailed a link to complete the full sign-up process.
  2. Please make sure that you include any medical information that we will require for safe-guarding in the additional field, and agree to the photograph consent. 
  3. There is the opportunity to add multiple parental contacts if needed. 
  4. Please indicate your preferred payment method when registering (BACs or Direct Debit) – details below.
  5. Once registered we will allocate your child to the appropriate squad so that you receive all squad-specific information from your manager. We will no longer be keeping separate lists so you must register to continue receiving the information you need. 

Fee Payment

This year’s fees are unchanged from last year :

Little Stars - £80

U10s - £100

Summer Newsletter 2018


Mini Hockey at Belper Hockey Club is for children aged 5 to 12 of all abilities.   

The Mini Hockey Group currently has around 120 participants. We introduce children aged 5 to 12 (school years 1 to 7) to hockey in a safe and fun way. The sessions involve a mix of skills and small-sided games designed to encourage these young players to learn the basics of hockey. Coaching takes place for the U8s (Little Stars) and U10s on Sunday mornings, 9.30 - 11.00 and the U12s on Monday evenings, 7.00 - 8.30pm, from September to April.

Players are welcome from complete beginners to those who have been playing for a few years. All you need are shin pads and a gum shield to start playing. We will lend you a stick if required.

Hockey matches are organised for the U10 and U12 boys and girls against other local hockey clubs and independent schools. We also compete in the local tournaments run by clubs in the area.

In addition, we compete in the County Mini Hockey tournament where we have been successful in the past few years. Last year all 4 of our teams (U10/U12 boys and girls) progressed through to the Regional Finals where they faired well against some of the best teams in the Midlands.  

Within Mini Hockey we also have a growing number of players both boys and girls who have reached a county (JAC) standard of hockey.
