Our Junior season is now confirmed to start on Sunday the 4th of September with an Open Day in St. Marys Secondary School in Naas for all age groups. This is to allow parents the opportunity to meet with some of the coaches and also Karen Grant will be there with samples of the Naas Junior Kit which can be tried on and ordered on the day. We intend to have some hockey equipment, sticks, shin pads, gum shields and some other items for sale on the day.
An email by August 24th with more details about this Open Day including a time that each class group will attend as we are having ALL Primary and Secondary class groups in St. Marys on that day. We intend to have a fun mini tournament for each class group on this day to allow kids to meet each other and parents to meet Head Coaches whilst the kids are busy playing.
In addition you will also receive a message from your child/childrens respective Head Coaches closer to the start of the season to invite you to join the specific ClubZap group for your childs class group. These groups will be used for weekly communication between the Head Coach and parents. Children must be registered by August 21st via ClubZap in order to attend Junior Training on September 4th and places are limited so please do register early.

As we did last year our procedure for Junior Club Registrations is all done via ClubZap.
Our registrations are now up and running. If you are not familiar with or cannot remember how to do this please follow these instructions :
The first step is to download the ClubZap App to your phone.
Once you have done this please join the Naas Hockey Club Group which will come up in a list of clubs using ClubZap.
Once you have done this to register your child/children please go into ClubZap App for Naas Hockey club and on the bottom of your screen tap the Clubhouse icon.
At the top of the page you will see a Membership section. Tap this and follow the instructions.
Please ensure you choose the correct class group for your child when filling this out.
Payment this year is also via ClubZap and this will be required in order to complete this registration process. This can be paid either in full or over 3 months. You will be given this option to choose when completing your registration.
Our season will as always commence in September. For all who register for the season you will receive a notification from the Head Coach of your child/childrens group the week before training commences.
Please make sure that your children understand that we cannot guarantee that they will always be in the same pod each week nor can we promise that they will always be with their friends. It is impossible to facilitate this for everyone and where levels are different it is important that all children are placed as accurately as possible in a suitable group. The hockey club provides a great platform for them to learn and upskill their hockey, being part of a team, whilst also being able to forge new friendships.
The following is a list of our Junior membership prices which will also appear on the ClubZap App for you:
€130 for 1 child - Junior Infants up to and including 1st Year
€155 - 2nd & 3rd Year children
€175 - 4th, 5th & 6th Year children
Total Discount Amounts for families with more than 1 child registering

€70 discount for 3 children
€120 discount for 4 children
€170 discount for 5 children
The above discounts will apply automatically when you register your children but registrations must all be done at the same time in order to be discounted.
Non playing (Pavilion) membership €20
As always we would ask if any of you are in a position to offer to assist us at training sessions or can umpire when it comes to matches to please email me directly if you are in a position to help us out.
We would be lost without volunteers and parents as our numbers are great. We can schedule a coaching course for parents to give any of you that are interested the basic knowledge to help you understand the game, the rules and hopefully to encourage some more parents to be able to help us at training sessions and matches going forward. So please do not be afraid to offer to help even if it is to shadow a coach initially so you can learn from them.
We hope you are all as excited as we are about the upcoming season.
