U13 Hockey 2024 U13 Otago Hockey Booster Poster 2024

Otago Hockey is spending more time investing in their future by offering the Junior Booster Hockey Program to players in the Year 5&6, Year 7&8 (U13).

This Program is open to any player in the above age groups who would like to improve and up-skill their hockey for the 2024 hockey season.

Booster Program

The Booster program has replaced the traditional Hatch and Collier Rep programs. All players, who register for this program will receive coaching each Sunday morning for 3 weeks, 1 week of Game Play and then 3 team trainings in preparation for the Festival of Hockey at the end of the program.

This program will run during Term Two. (Note this is earlier than in previous years to encourage better skill development 'during' the season).

Cost is $115

Open to all players in Years 5-8.  Only Year 7 and 8 players can attend the Festival though.  There will be extra costs associated with attending the Festival.

Program description

The Booster Program is a continuation of the Accelerator Program, which we ran at the beginning of the hockey season, to help players improve their basic skills, learn new skills and help with their understanding of hockey concepts.

It is not a requirement to have attended the Accelerator Program to attend the Booster Program.

Festival of Hockey will be held in Oamaru on Saturday 20th and 21st of July 2024 for both Boys and Girls.

Description of the Festival of Hockey

After weeks of training in the Booster Program we will send multiple teams (all players who participated in the Booster program are placed into teams) to play games against other association teams in a Festival of hockey weekend.

Registrations for the U13 Booster Programme are open NOW.
