We take girls from 13 to start their hockey career, we don’t run a junior team. The girls train and play with the seniors. We are very conscious that they are young and ensure that they are integrated into the team.
Wick have 2 Welfare Officers who have been on training to ensure members safety and wellbeing. Our Captain's, Coaches, Welfare Officers and Umpires are DBS as per England Hockey's guidance. As a club we follow the England Hockey Safeguarding and Protecting Young People in Hockey Policy see below.
We are an inclusive club and encourage our youngsters and their parents to attend our social events. We ensure that their views are represented at the committee meetings, as we have a junior committee member.
Please read our Young Persons and Parents Guide for more information.
