The under 13 age group is a continuation of the development started in previous age groups with the emphasis on the development of passing and receiving in a game situation.
As with all age groups our goal is to create a safe and enjoyable environment based around hockey where the girls develop both their hockey skills and also hopefully long lasting friendships. Additionally we aim to try and give all the girls the opportunity to play in matches should they want to.
Ulster Hockey run a number of “Blitz” days which are mini tournaments (no winners or losers) where teams of 8 (“awesome eights”) play each other on a half the pitch. BLHC Juniors currently enter 3 teams into the U13 Blitz program and rotate the girls so that they they all get an opportunity to play. Additionally UH run a end of season competitive tournament where each club enters one team.

Blitz Day 1: 30/09/2018 at North Down HC
