NCE Junior Program

North Canberra Eagles has a strong focus on developing and nurturing junior talent in the club. We are dedicated to providing a safe environment for juniors and to give them the opportunities to develop their hockey skills, build teams founded on strong comradeship and nurture leadership qualities.

In 2022, the club ran Under 7 and Under 9 programs through Hookin2Hockey clinics on a Saturday morning for both boys and girls, and junior boys and girls teams from Under 11 to Under 18.


Age group eligibility is based on the child’s age as at 1 January in the year of the competition. Although Hockey ACT is yet to issue the draw for 2024, they are proposing the following competition arrangements:




Hookin2Hockey (U10) Saturday morning (all terms) and Tuesday afternoon (Terms 2 and 3) Saturday morning (all terms) and Tuesday afternoon (Terms 2 and 3)
U12 Sunday morning Sunday morning
U14 Saturday morning Saturday morning
U18 Friday evening Friday evening

Game Times

Game times vary each week – for example, the U18 girls games on a Friday evening can start as early as 5:10pm up to 7:30pm.


Playing shirts are available through ATHLEAD (only U13-U18 need to purchase a shirt), socks are available from the hockey shop in Lyneham and you will need to find your own black Shorts/Skirts.

All juniors are provided with a shirt and socks are available for purchase from the Hockey Shop in Lyneham.
