The girls have U14 Girls (Vixens) some matches (y 8 & 9) on Sundays. Y9 & 10 girls play in the ladies’ teams on Saturdays.

The younger Lion Cubs (Y1 &  2 ) only play ‘matches’ in training. Their training consists of some hockey skills mixed with Agility, Balance & Co-ordination (ABCs) activities. We also play games such as ‘toilet tag’ for fitness and fun.   Concentration levels are not well developed at this stage on the whole!
