Norths Junior Girls Development Program

Norths Junior Girls Hockey Club puts a big focus on player development. This year we are delivering a dedicated Junior Girls Development Program made up of a series of activities aimed at growing excellent hockey skills and understanding of gameplay and teamwork - the core elements of a well rounded player.

We have many knowledgeable and experienced coaches within the Club who play a key role in our Junior Development Program including Queensland Selector Judy Hartnett, and are delighted to have Queensland coach and selector Regie Fisher to our coaching line up. Good on you Regie.

We also actively engage external coaches where appropriate to deliver targeted development sessions as well as participating in development clinics run by BWHA and Hockey Queensland.

 All clinics will be emailed and advertised throughout our social media pages:
