Our junior training takes place every Wednesday throughout the hockey season at Welland Park Academy on the all-weather pitch. There is ample parking and sticks are provided if you don't have your own. You just need trainers with good grip, shin-pads and mouthguards.

Family Hockey Evening – Wednesday 22nd May, 17:30–19:00

You are welcome to join us at the last junior session of the season for our annual Family Hockey Evening. We will have some fun, hockey-related games and activities for everyone, young and old, to take part in—bring your family and friends! Plus, we will hold a short meeting for parents and carers, to update you on our developments and plans for next season.


Competitive Matches

There is the opportunity for all youngters to play in local tournaments on Sundays throughout the season; we field teams of under 8s, under 10s, under 12s and under 14s. Players are not charged to play in Sunday tournaments. For older children there is the chance to play regularly for the Badgers team.



The MHHC Badgers play on Saturdays in the Northamptonshire Two Counties Badgers League. The Badgers League is a good introduction to full sized hockey, and is competitive and friendly. Badgers teams are made up of nine juniors and two supporting adults playing 11-a-side on a full size pitch. Junior players must be under 16-years-old, most are aged between 13- and 16-years-old but some as young as 11-years-old have been part of the squad.

Badgers 2018

Our Badgers team have lots of fun, playing hockey in a supportive and friendly environment. In 2017/18 the MHHC Badgers team was very successful and finished the season top of their league!
