Hookin2Hockey with Minkey (all ages Under 9's) 

A REMINDER - There is no Minkey this Saturday 15 April.

 2017 Minkey catering for all ages U9

Each year Glebe runs a popular Minkey program which allows younger children to hookin2hockey skills and techniques in a friendly, fun and safe atmosphere. It is specifically aimed at the younger novice - no previous hockey experience is necessary. The usual age is 3 - 8 yrs old. Minkey is run by Vernon Howe, our popular Minkey Coach, with help from members of Glebe Hockey Club. After spending one or two years in the Minkey Squad, the children can progress to the age teams.

Minkey all ages U9 is held on Saturday mornings at Jubilee Oval and will start April 1st from 9.30am to 10.45 am. We will be using  new safer softer hockey balls in 2017.



We welcome our current registered Minkey players
