East Devon Hockey Club Junior Academy is presently based at St Peter's School, Exeter where coaching takes place for year 9 and under on Thursday nights from 6-00 to 7-00.  In recent years we have had upwards of 40 boys and some girls of all ages and experiences attending these sessions.  Training is usually in small groups of similar aged and ability members under the direct supervision of a member of our junior coaching team.  We are a Mens Hockey Club but enthusiastically developing girls teams at Junior Level.

 We enter are boys in tournaments for U10, U12 and U14.     In 2016 our boys under 12s finished a very creditable third in the County Finals.  In 2017 we entered the girls at U10 level.  In 2018 the Under 10 Girls finished second in the County finals and went on to represent Devon in the regionals. In 2020 the under 12 girls were crowned County Champions.

At 14, year 10, boys leave  our Junior section and as Youth Members join training sessions and teams with our senior men.  

Coaching is provided on 22 Thursday's throughout the Spring and Autumn term. All new junior members are given two weeks trial to see if they like it before we ask for any membership payments.  We have junior sticks of all sizes to borrow before they decide to purchase their own.  All under 18 's are required to wear shin protection and mouth guards at all training and match days. 

Garry Nash is an experienced and well qualified coach who looks after the Junior girls.
