Beginners Hockey

What is hockey?

  • Field hockey is one of the most popular and widely played sports in the world

  • Similar to football, it's an 11-a-side team sport where the aim is to score in the opposition goal

  • Matches are 70mins, with four quarters

  • Players pass a small hard ball around using a hooked stick

  • It's predominantly played on the ground, though there are aerial elements to it - depending on the level

Is it for me?

  • The basic skills and general rules of hockey are easy to pick up!

  • Muckross has a team to cater for everyone, regardless of age, ability or fitness

  • It's not uncommon to have two or more generations of a family in one team

  • There's a very social side to being part of a club, with a strong culture of team bonding off the pitch.

  • There was a surge in public interest in hockey after Ireland's Women won Silver at the 2018 Hockey World Cup

How do I start?

  • We love welcoming beginners, so the first thing to do is send us a message to introduce yourself!

  • You'll need a stick, gum-shield and shinguards

  • Beginners join our Ladies 5ths team

  • The team coach will introduce you to hockey and work to help you improve - you'll be playing matches in no time!

What to expect?
