One of the premier Junior ‘Field’ Hockey Clubs in the south east, Purley Walcountians Hockey Club is committed to providing an enjoyable, safe, child friendly environment where all young players, regardless of ability, receive quality coaching and the opportunity to enjoy playing a team sport with friends. We are Clubmark accredited, recognising that it is a safe organisation that follows best practice guidelines.
Junior hockey at Purley Walcountians is open to anybody from the age of 6 years to 16. The Colts Section has grown rapidly to the 100 plus members and large group of highly committed volunteer coaches and organisers that exists today. These regular coaches supervise all coaching and many are volunteers who receive no payment for all their time and expertise.
Our Junior programme is one which the club is extremely proud of. We cater for Under 8's right through to under 16's in both boys and girls. Many of our juniors have gone onto play at county, regional and National age groups. We support talented players towards county and regional development centre training.
The junior section has very strong links with the senior teams and a successful policy of supporting players through junior teams and into the senior sides in the club. There are a number of adult teams designed for development of young players
