At Sutherland Hockey Club, the purpose of the our Minkey program is to introduce girls and boys to the basic skills and rules of Hockey and to combine these skills with mini games. It is suitable for children aged between 4 and 9 years.
Our Minkey players will learn skills and participate in games sessions in a fun and social atmosphere on our synthetic turf.
All our Minkey sessions are run by qualified Coaches and it provides a great preparation for the Summer Schools 6 Aside Competition held in Term 4 each year as well as for eventual participation in our junior team competitions in U11’s.
The weekly minkey program consists of:
- A warm-up / stretching session
- A skills session
- Presentation session
For skills session the players are divided into groups depending on their age and ability.
Many of our aspiring juniors and players in our men’s and women teams have came up through our Minkey and Summer Competition programs.
