Guernsey Hockey - U14s & U16s

For the past six years we have supported the development of Guernsey Hockey's youth teams. This has enabled the players to benefit from tours to the UK, playing other teams of the same age in friendlies and tournaments. Additionally Guernsey Hockey has been able to bring over UK coaches. 

'Having the opportunity to play against UK sides is invaluable to our younger players. The camaraderie between the players is much stronger after an away trip and they have the opportunity to test out the plays they have practised in training,' said Nigel Cashin from Guernsey Hockey.

In September 2020 Ravenscroft provided additional funding to enable a tournament with the Isle of Man to go ahead in Guernsey, however due to the travel restrictions no trips were able to take place during the 20/21 season. 

Hockey has restarted for the 2021/22 season and we are hopeful that the teams will soon be able to travel, with UK coaching visits already planned.
