Junior Teams

The Youth section at Granite City Wanderers is the fastest growing section of the club. The club currently fields several junior teams in local festivals and competitions for both boys and girls from 10 year olds to 17 year olds. We are also proud to have several of our youngsters feature in the North District squads which are used for National Selection.
 
The club is keen that our youngsters are provided with the correct coaching to gain the level of hockey they feel comfortable playing and to this end we have a dedicated youth session at Rubislaw Playing Fields every Thursday evening from 6pm-7.30pm The session is split between primary and secondary groups in order that coaching can be tailored to the appropriate age group.  We also ensure that there are games for the children to play in regularly as that is why they take the sport up after all.
 
All sessions are supervised by Scottish Hockey Accredited coaches and all our coaches carry an enhanced Child Disclosure Certificate.
 
If you feel this may be the club for you or you just wish to ask a few more questions please feel free to contact our Youth Coordinator.

Under 12s Enjoy Primary School Qualifier

Rubislaw yesterday was the venue for the National Primary School Qualifier. Granite City Wanderers had two teams of youngsters entered ( 16 ), the only club entered amongst all the primary schools.

Ali Gentilucci and Sandy Keith looked after the teams and Alastair Hunter showed his umpiring skills. There were plenty of games for the youngsters some of who were playing their first ever games of hockey. I am pleased to say both our teams finished second in their group. It was also nice to see some of the school teams also with Granite City players featuring in their sides.

 

At the end of the day the goal was achieved as all left looking forward to the next event with smiles on their faces.
