Minkey Hockey

Minkey Hockey

Minkey hockey is a modified version of traditional hockey, especially adapted for younger players and played on a smaller playing field.

Minkey is suitable for children aged between 4 and 9 years. It provides a great, fun introduction to hockey for boys and girls. Details are to come, but Sutho's Minkey program runs Friday afternoons 4.30pm to 6.00pm in Terms 2 and 3.

Our Minkey program introduces girls and boys to the basic skills and rules of hockey. Then they  apply them in mini games. All  Minkey sessions are run by qualified Coaches.

It's all in a fun, social atmosphere and played on the same synthetic turf where our top players compete.

The sessions are great preparation for Sutho' s Summer Schools 6-a-side 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 is:

  • A warm-up / stretching session
  • A skills session, with players divided into groups depending on their age and ability
  • Mini games
  • Presentation in the clubhouse, and
  • A free end of season BBQ presentation for all players.

All children must have shin pads and mouthguards to participate. Hockey sticks and gear can be provided.

Many of our aspiring juniors and players in our men’s and women teams have graduated from our Minkey and Summer Competition programs.

Venue: Sutherland Hockey Field, Sylvania Rd, Sylvania
