Welcome to Kent Juniors!

Kent have a thriving junior hockey community that operates with several thousand kids playing hockey at schools or in clubs every week – something that we are rightly proud of.

There are many ways to play the game – whether that is just starting out, taking part at school, being part of a regular club or seeking to become the next Olympic gold medal winner.  There are even hockey activities for those less able with learning or physical disabilities. There is a place for everyone – both girls and boys, from u5s to u16s.

There is a list below of all the competitions that Kent run, and who is the contact for each event – so if you wish to take part, or are interested on behalf of a school or club – please reach out to them directly.
