Trojans Hockey Club has a proud history of producing talented young players that go on to achieve great things. Alex Danson is among many Trojans juniors that have represented England whilst at Trojans. Trojans junior teams have been successful in Hampshire, South and National competitions alike. Our junior section has expanded massively over the past six years and the club has big plans to ensure that this development continues in the future.
Trojans U16 Boys had an unbeaten outdoor season in 2022-3, winning both the EH Tier 1 U16 Championship and EH Tier 1 U16 Supra League Championship.
Trojans U16 Girls reached the semifinals of the EH Tier 1 U16 Championship and finished 4th at the EH Tier 1 U16 Supra League Championship.
Trojans were the only club in the country to have both boys and girls representation at the EH Supra League Championships.
Trojans runs weekly coaching sessions during the hockey season (September to April) for all age groups from Under 8s through to Under 16s. The Under 18 age groups train with the adult teams during the week. Each age group follows the Trojans Junior Coaching Syllabus designed to develop a wide skill base.

Your child will train with the age group based on the school year they are in at the start of the hockey season (September 23).
If you’d like your child to join Trojans Hockey Club, please ‘Register Now’ in the Teamo app. If a place is available they will be added to the appropriate squad for their age and you’ll then be able to see details of training sessions and fixtures as well as receive information from the team manager and coaches. Sometimes we have to maintain a waiting list for some of the age groups – you’ll be contacted when a place becomes available.
New members can attend 3 free training sessions. After this, you’ll be asked to pay for membership.
The club uses Teamo to manage all training sessions, matches, payments for membership and match fees so it’s important for parents and guardians to install the app and allow notifications.
What to Bring
It’s essential that each player has a mouthguard, hockey shin pads (football shin pads do not protect ankles) and a water bottle. New players are welcome to borrow a stick to try for the first few sessions. Shoes can be trainers, but preferably Astro shoes, and must not be studded. The club intends to run second-hand kit sales at the start of the season to help new players and reduce waste.
Juniors can train in any suitable sports clothing, though many like to wear a Trojans hooded top in the winter months. For matches, we ask that they wear navy shorts / skorts and red socks. Trojans versions are available to purchase, but not compulsory. Trojans kit is available from our kit suppliers as described here. Club socks (Home and Away) , hats and other accessories can be purchased through the Trojans Club shop online via https://trojans-hockey.square.site/.
The club provides match shirts to teams for Under 8s, Under 10s and Under 12s. We ask players over this age to purchase their own numbered match shirt from here. Email Message Club Kit to be allocated a shirt number.
Additionally, older players playing in leagues against teams further-afield may be asked to have their own white away shirt and white socks for away matches.

In addition to providing junior and senior training sessions, Trojans operates a youth performance programme. This programme operates on an invite only basis but is aimed at players who are striving to get selected for Men’s or Ladies first teams in the coming seasons.
The programme delivers high quality training sessions along with sessions focused on:
This programme is only available to Trojans members. Players should be playing at least at AC level. The programme supports the Club’s Talent Centre delivery but is not part of the England Hockey Talent System Framework.

The Junior section relies on volunteers to be successful and we have an amazing group of people who already donate their time and energy to junior hockey.
