Harleston Magpies Youth Section
was set up to look after the hockey interests of those within the Club up to the age of 18. The playing and coaching side is organised by the Youth Development Officers.
Youth Development Officer: James Smith
Coaching is available on a weekly basis with players progressing through the U10 and U12 Mini teams to the Girls’ and Boys’ Development teams that play in the Norfolk League. Some adult teams are set aside especially to develop younger players with a small core of adults to support them. In the case of the Ladies this is in the Norfolk League and for the Men this is in the East League.
Full details of coaching times can be found under the Coaching section page of this website. If you have a child who is interested in taking up hockey please contact the Youth Development Officer.
