Please arrive 15 minutes before your training session starts so that you can get registered qucikly. Anyone who can't make the beginning of the season is welcome to come up any Sunday & register.  We are always keen to increase our Junior Boys & Girls membership so please encourage anyone to come along & give hockey a try !

BOYS & GIRLS CALENDAR
A full season calendar for Boys & Girls is available on the calendar tab. This is updated each month, showing both friendly matches, league matches, and blitzs.
It will be the end of September before we have a calendar of matches for all groups. 

COMMUNICATION VIA TEXT MESSAGE
Parents are advised of any matches via texts earlier in the week.  If there is regular training as per above, you will not get a text.  Texts will be sent if training/matches are cancelled, so unless you receive a text assume training/matches are going ahead. 

EQUIPEMENT FOR TRAINING & MATCHES
Please ensure your child has the following:  gum shield (players will not play without one); shin guards, and, good runners.  If your child arrives wearing plimsoles or canvas shoes they will not be allowed to play.  Good runners will ensure they do not slip on the astro surface and if they do get hit by a ball the runner will protect their feet.  We have also noted a few children wearing football boots.  These are not suitable for the astro turf surface and could cause your child to twist their ankle. Please ensure hair is tied back & that all jewellery, including watches, are removed. 

MATCHES 
Leinster have a competitive league for all players from 1st year on.  We have a number of teams competing; U13's 1st years; U14's Minors; U16's Juniors.  All younger age groups play friendly matches 6 or 8 a-side with other clubs during the season.  The friendly matches will be on Sunday mornings across Dublin and we would urge you to encourage your child to attend.  Only by playing regular matches and coming to training frequently will improvement be seen. 
Please ensure that your child has the correct Club Uniform for matches. This can be purchased on Sunday mornings.
