Rookeys (Under 7's & 9's)

UQHC is dedicated to growing the sport of Hockey, starting with our youngest club members, the Under 7's and the Under 9's.

Location

Games are played on Saturday Morning's at Rasey Park - Herston, Where the grass fields are sized and marked specially for those still learning the game.


Here is a map of the field locations at Rasey Park

Under 7

Under 7 Hockey focuses on fun and participation.  Games are played on a reduced field with lighter balls and 7 players. Training is held once a week for 1 hour and games are played Saturday morning.

Games consist of 2 x 20 minute halves with a 5 minute break.

Teams are made up of both boys and girls. But the games held at Rasey Park are run by the Brisbane Women's Hockey Association, and as such they have strict rules about a maximum of 3 boys on the field at any one time.

If we have enough boys interested in playing we will seek to submit a team/s into the Brisbane Hockey Association (Men's) junior competition, but this has not yet been the case for our club.

Under 9

Under 9 hockey is for both new and existing players and encourages players to enjoy the game whilst learning the key principles of the game.
Games are played on a half sized grass field with 8 players including a goalkeeper.
Training is held for 1 hour once a week and games are played Saturday morning. Games consist of 2 x 20 minute halves with a 5 minute break. As with the Under 7's teams are made up of both boys and girls or gender specific depending on preference and numbers.
