Sutherland Juniors – Ages 10 to 17

Welcome to Sutho Juniors – the youngsters’ side of Sutherland Hockey Club.

Juniors playing in the Sutho blue underpin our proud history in men’s, women’s and junior competitions, with players who began their playing careers with us going on to represent Sydney, NSW and Australia.

Sutho Juniors have had many successful seasons of hockey.  However, we define success as not only achieving our aims on the field but also by ensuring our juniors develop their hockey skills each season and enjoy themselves – all while playing at the highest levels of sportsmanship.

Big games: Sutho v. Sutho!

Great player package

We offer our juniors great centralised facilities, coaches, targeted junior skills development programs, representative pathways, senior playing pathways, umpiring pathways, and fun…

All this is based at an Olympic-standard synthetic playing pitch. This was used in 2020 by Australian and Belgian teams for the first international hockey match played in Sutherland Shire.

The NSW Government’s $100 Active Kids voucher can be used to reduce junior playing fees.
