Juniors Kit

All junior players are required to wear a well fitting mouth guard and shin pads for all training and matches. It is for their safety and they will not be allowed to play without them even for a trial session.

What is the kit?

Royal Blue THC Hoodie
Royal Blue & White Quarters shirt
Navy Shorts/skorts
Royal blue socks

Kit is not compulsory for training but we do suggest that if your child is a dedicated member and enjoys playing, that you think about purchasing a THC top for matches and tournaments. It promotes a good sense of unity and strong team spirit.

Where can I purchase it?

For official THC Club kit and all other hockey related equipment, please visit Chiltern Sports

Other Equipment you may need:

Water bottles/snack and plenty of warm clothing, especially when it gets cold (gloves, hats, tracksuit bottoms, fleeces etc.) and a waterproof jacket when it’s wet. The pitch is very exposed so please send kids well wrapped up with layers and warm/woolly (not ski gloves) gloves – they can take stuff off but once they are cold, they are really cold!   

The Club provides:

A variety of junior sticks for loan, balls, first aid equipment and Goalie equipment.
