Bringing your children to mini hockey at Lewes is a great way to introduce them to hockey.
We offer qualified coaches, structured training sessions and fun! But most importantly we aim to provide the best environment to give children every opportunity to fulfill their potential and create a life long relationship with one of the greatest sports in the world.

Hockey sticks are provided for those who need them and children should wear sports clothing and trainers. They also need to be equipped for the weather, including warm rainproof clothing and gloves if necessary. Please ensure that your child has shin pads and gum shields – these are essential.
