The club is very open to new players and having the opportunity to coach as many young people as we can.  The Under 16’s team is coached and managed by Stuart Harrison.

Under 16 training sessions are as follows:

  • 7:00pm – 9:00pm Friday

Training is informal and friendly, and we will go ahead in most weathers (as long as it is safe). For players above the age of 13, their coach may recommend that they attend the relevant senior training for their skill level.

  • 7.00 pm – 9.00 pm Tuesday – General senior and ladies training
  • 7.00 pm – 9.00 pm Thursday – High Performance training

How to get involved

Please feel free to come along between 7.00 pm – 9.00 pm on a Friday evening for a free taster session.  You will need shin pads, gum shield and a stick, but don’t worry if you don’t have them, we have spares available.  You will also need warm clothing and a drink.

Successes in previous seasons

2018/19

An interesting season which has seen three days of U16s hockey.  We struggled for numbers, which resulted in the team being supplemented by U14 players.  There were a few new faces in the squad and this has helped the team develop positively.  The grit and determination shown by every player is what BHC is all about, and this was demonstrated time and time again.

Players have all developed their core skills during the year and this will benefit the team, and themselves towards the next season, and they should be thanked for their commitment, turning up to train no matter what the weather.

2017/18

Our U16 boys involvement this season has been hampered by the lack of players of the correct age, clashes with the England Hockey Player Pathway System activity and our involvement in the U18 Cup resulting in the fact that we could only take part on 3 occasions, and, with a much depleted side.

This left a very young and inexperienced group to start life in Division 1 after last year’s success, an experience which, whilst an initial shock to the system, will have given our younger players an insight into the level to which they need to aspire over the coming season.

This is a very exciting group who will undoubtedly be a force to be reckoned with, if they continue to show the same attitude and commitment to training they have shown so far.

2016/17

Our U16 boys involvement this season has been hampered by a lack of players of the correct age, clashes with the England Hockey Player Pathway System activity and our involvement in the U18 Cup resulting in the fact that we could only take part on three occasions and, with a depleted side.

This year a very young and inexperienced group to start life in Division 1 after last year’s success, an experience which, whilst an initial shock to the system, will have given our younger players an insight into to level to which they need to aspire over the next two seasons.

This is very exciting group who will undoubtedly be a force to reckon with in the coming seasons, if they continue to show the same attitude and commitment to training they have shown so far.

The group excelled themselves at the North Indoor Tournament. They had convincing wins over Wakefield and Preston and only lost to a strong Bowden side in their league. This meant they qualified for the Semi-finals only to be denied the opportunity to fight for a national Indoor Place as a result of our older U16s having already played for the U18s the previous week.

It was an good experience for all involved and the first opportunity for some of our U14s to play in an indoor tournament.
