Our youth coaching sessions have proved to be very successful for over twenty years with an average of 140 boys and girls each year aged P4 to S6 progressing from basic skills to playing for our U-14, U-16 or U-18 teams, and then on to the senior mens or ladies teams. We have taken U18 Boys teams on tour to Holland eleven times since 2004. Members of our youth section have been selected for Scotland squads at U16 and U18 level and a number have also gone on to win U21 caps. In 2016 our U-16 Boys won the Scottish U-16 Cup and in 2017/18 we currently have four members in youth international squads.
Coaching is held every week during the hockey season at the RGC astroturf pitches on Countesswells Road. Our coaches have attended Child Protection courses and hold PVG certificates. Sticks are available for use at the sessions until your child has one of their own.
