Minkey hockey at Sutho

What is Minkey?

Minkey hockey is a modified version of traditional hockey that’s  adapted for junior players on a smaller playing field. It provides a great opportunity for kids to learn and get involved in a fun, regular competition.

The program runs at our club each Friday afternoon from  4.30 pm to 6.00 pm during school terms 2 and 3 each year.

At Sutherland Hockey Club, our Minkey program introduces girls and boys to the basic skills and rules of hockey. Then the kids get to combine these skills with mini games. Minkey is suitable for children aged between 4 and 9 years.

Our Minkey players learn skills and play in a fun, social atmosphere on our brand new synthetic turf.

All our Minkey sessions are run by qualified Coaches. It also  provides great preparation for our club’s Summer Schools 6-a-side competition held in Term 4 each year – as well as for graduating to our junior team competitions in Under 11s.

The weekly Minkey program is:

  • A warm-up / stretching session
  • A skills session
  • Mini games
  • Presentation session in the clubhouse
  • Free BBQ presentation at the end of the season for all players.

For skills sessions, the players are divided into groups depending on their age and ability.

Many of our juniors and players in our men’s and women teams have came through our Minkey and Summer Competition programs.
