The England Hockey Junior Competitions Framework has been well received by clubs offering greater clarity on alignment in the junior hockey calendar ensuring provision for all levels of club to participate, improving the way that the calendar can work to support players in making good choices around activities and avoid conflicts.
Fixtures will be entered on to the Game Management System (GMS) and clubs are responsible for entering venue details, match times and ensuring all their team contacts are kept up to date.
Club Junior Leagues - U14, U16 & U18
- Tier 1 Leagues are intended for the top teams at these age groups. In the U14 & U16 age groups, after an initial round of matches at West Area level, the top 3 teams will qualify for a national Supra League which will run for the remainder of the season & lead to National Finals. The remaining teams will play in the Junior West Hockey Leagues.
- Tier 2 Leagues are West Area level competition with a number of divisions arranged geographically to minimise travel. West Area Finals will be held at the end of the season, if required.
- Tier 3 & 4 Leagues have been merged within the West Area, as entries were low and to minimize travel. West Area Finals will be held at the end of the season, if required.
