Welcome to University Juniors Hockey Club. We are the combined junior club of the Australian National University (ANU) Men’s and Women’s Hockey Clubs and the University of Canberra (UC) Hockey Club.
We were formed in 2009 with just a small group of Minkey (now Hook in2 Hockey) players and last year we had over 160 players, from Hook in2 Hockey through to Under 18 girls and Under 15 Boys playing outdoor and/or indoor hockey.
This year we will have teams in all ages and divisions in Girls (Under 18 and down) as well as all ages and divisions for boys from and including Under 15s down.
Our strategic plan is to cater for boys and girls 5 – 9 years old, to continue (and enhance in conjunction with Hockey ACT and Hockey Australia), our hugely successful Hook in2 Hockey Program with the newly introduced Game On; and for boys and girls 9 to 18 years old in both Division 1 (for the more competitive and experienced players) and Division 2 (for those who are less experienced and/or have a lesser focus on the competitive side of our game) for all age groups. We have a large number of players who have represented the ACT and Canberra at National and State Championships as well as ACT/NSW Regional Carnivals.
We also provide a pathway for our juniors to move into the senior ranks. In 2016 quite a few of our Under 15 girls played senior hockey for either ANU or UC and this has continued again this year.
