Juniors set to go in 2020

Sutho kids have a good time…

Welcome to Sutho Juniors – the youngsters’ side of Sutherland Hockey Club. We are one of the largest hockey clubs in Australia with a growing number of juniors playing in the Sutho blue. They underpin Sutherland’s proud history of Club success in men’s, women’s and junior competitions – with many Sutho of our young players going on to represent Sydney, NSW and Australia.

Big games: Sutho v. Sutho!

The Sutho Juniors have had many successful seasons of hockey. We define success – not only by achieving our goals – but also by ensuring our junior players are developing their hockey skills each season and enjoying playing hockey.

Great player package

At the Sutherland Hockey Club we offer our juniors great centralised facilities, coaches, targeted junior skills development programs, representative pathways, senior playing pathways, umpiring pathways, and fun… all on a new, Olympic standard synthetic playing pitch. It was recently used by Australian and Belgian teams for the first international hockey match played in Sutherland Shire.

Regardless of your hockey skill level – beginner or experienced – or your age, Sutho can assist you take on the challenge of learning to play hockey or to develop your hockey skills to the next level.

Before we get to all the details, here’s a glimpse of Sutho kids having fun in their matches in 2019:

Minkey Program (ages 5 to 9)


The Minkey Hockey Program at the Sutherland Hockey Club focuses on introducing hockey to 5 to 9 year old girls and boys. It provides a great opportunity for kids to learn and develop their hockey skills, with the added benefit of developing their social skills in small mixed groups.

Our Minkey Program introduces girls and boys to the basic skills and rules of hockey using fun activities in a social atmosphere on our brand new synthetic turf hockey pitch. The program does not involve any actual teams or competition games.

The Minkey Program is run on Friday afternoons (4:30pm–6pm) throughout school Term 2 and the first half of Term 3.
