Bayside Hockey Club Junior Teams

Bayside is a family friendly club currently fielding teams catering for U8s to U18s. We have teams suited for all skill levels in all age groups. 


Since the inception of juniors to Bayside in 2012 we have grown our junior division to over 150 players. Our Bayside Juniors are known as the Bayside Cubs.  


We have a unique Bayside Hockey Club initiative called the J2S which is our Junior to Senior Development Program. Overseen by Coaches from the senior division this program is designed to identify junior players who have the potential and desire to continue their hockey journey to a higher level.

We also support our Juniors on their journey to Victorian State Championships. We have many players selected for Southern Metro Sharks Rep hockey as well as several players in the Vic State team. 


For the 2022 season Bayside will field the following junior teams:

  • Under 8  mixed (year of birth 2014 and up)

  • Under 10 Boys and Girls (2013/2012)

  • Under 12 Boys and Girls (2011/20010

  • Under 14 Boys and Girls (2009/2008)

  • Under 16 Boys and Girls (2007/2006)

Come and try

You are welcome to come and have a try at hockey at any of our training sessions (see link below).  We will be able to support you and provide you with equipment including a stick while you are learning.  Hopefully you will catch the hockey bug and become part of the Bayside family.
