Westleigh Juniors

Team info

Welcome to Leicester Westleigh Juniors

The club offer coaching and games for Girls and Boys from the age of 6 to 18. The club's aim is to provide a fun safe environment for players of all ability to learn the key skills and team-play of hockey.

First Stage - An Introduction to Hockey
The first stage is to introduce players to fun engaging games letting the players have fun, learning without knowing. As the players grow in skill and confidence more coaching is added but still through testing games. Through all of this we also hope to develop fitness , team work and confidence.

Players will get to use these new skills in mini tournaments on Sundays aimed at development through Leicestershire Schools and Youth hockey. These are all about everyone playing, win or loose (although try telling that to the players).

Next stage - Tournament Play
The club has a variety of junior teams entering England Hockey cup competitions and other local club tournaments. These are more competitive and the club have done well over the last few years getting medals at U10 and U12's in the 2018-2019 season. The U12s impressively came runners up in the County Cup losing only on penalty flicks. This led them to represent Leicestershire in the Midlands competition. We also enter the U14s England Tier 3 development league. This finished with a tournament in Warwick where the team did very well against teams London, Cambridge , Stratford and Liverpool.
