Waverley Panthers – U10 Intraclub program

Waverley Panthers will return in term 2 2019. Further information will be provided when details are finalised.

The Waverley Panthers U10 Intraclub program provides an environment to both introduce new players to the game of hockey and develop player’s skills and knowledge of hockey prior to progressing to an age appropriate Hockey Victoria competition.

The program provides:

  • a local intraclub program to reduce barriers of cost and travel for those new to the sport.
  • an appropriate introduction to competition for new and young players.
  • a bridge between Hookin2Hockey and the Hockey Victoria (HV) U10/U12 competitions and/or association competition.
  • player development, with smaller teams + smaller field = more touches, more involvement, and improved skill development.

The program aligns to the age and skill of the players, with a combination of skills development and small sided game play. Participants are allocated to a team with a dedicated coach. Each week starts with a training session with the coach to focus on developing specific skills. This is followed by a game against another Panther team to develop their match experience. Games will generally be 15 to 20 minute halves and played on either a quarter field (older groups) or eighth field (younger groups) format.

In 2019 the Waverley Panthers program will run throughout term 2 and term 4 (7/8 weeks each). Time (to be confirmed) Saturdays 11am-12pm.

Cost: To be confirmed – Waverley hockey club registration fee, plus a registration fee payable to Hockey Victoria which covers insurance for players.
