Thoughts For The Season 2018/19
Last season saw the start of a new period for Badgers hockey at Solihull Blossomfield Hockey Club. The badgers of last season played some fantastic hockey and grew stronger both as individuals and as a team as the season progressed. A large number have now moved into the senior men’s and ladies teams so we start the season able to bring through some new players from our Sunday morning junior training sessions.
Badgers hockey is the best way for our junior players to take their first steps towards adult hockey. It is played in an environment that allows them the opportunity to learn and understand the rules and tactics of the game with adult guidance. To enhance that progress through to senior hockey we have also established a Junior Academy to allow them to train alongside those senior teams.
Many of last year’s badgers were involved in the JDC programmes last season and we have seen a number progress through to JAC, with a few onto JRPC and are in trials for HiPAC. Many of this year’s squad will be involved in this year’s JDC programmes and with the extra experience of playing matches we hope they will progress through the county system also.
We are very excited about the year ahead, with a full fixture list for the season. Our home games are played either at Saint Martins School, Brueton Lane, Solihull at 3.00pm or Lode Heath High School on Lode Solihull and we would welcome the support of family, friends and supporters. Keep an eye on the website for fixture and results information.
Badger’s matches are played every Saturday, so come along and try it!
