Training at Wakefield Hockey Club is split into groups that are based on hockey skills and abilities as well as age. Our junior section accommodates all players up to the age of 16. We aim to offer the best coaching and place everybody within a group of similar standard players. As your skills improve, you will be moved up through the groups according to your skill set.
Wakefield Hockey Club is not just open to players who want to train from Wakefield, but we also welcome those who wish to get involved throughout Yorkshire. We welcome all players.
Training sessions are open to all, even if you don’t want to play in a team, you can still join in at training. If you’re not sure which group you belong in just come down to the sessions shown below in red, join in and your assigned coach will help you improve your game and help you along.

Our men’s training involves a small fitness session to start, followed by some skills-based training and a small game to finish. This approach helps all players to incorporate learned-skills into a game situation and also have a bit of fun.
