History of Cambridge City Junior Hockey Club

Junior hockey in Cambridge was trialled in 1985 in collaboration between Cambridge City Hockey Club (men) Cambridge Nomads, Cambridge City Council Amenities and Recreation Department and the Hockey Association to encourage more juniors to become involved in the sport.

Under the organisational umbrella of Cambridge City Hockey Club In the first season there were 7 one hour sessions on a Sunday morning held at Coldhams Common in Cambridge which continued on an ‘ad hoc’ basis with a gradual increase in numbers. By the end of 1989/1990 season a suggestion was made by the parent volunteers to formalise the activities and form a Committee.  This came into effect in 1990/91 and affiliation was with Cambridge City Hockey Club (CCHC) to continue to provide benefits in terms of insurance and progression of players whilst still remaining independent. A constitution was eventually prepared and adopted in the 1999/2000 season.

In 2004  a new forward thinking chairman and treasurer were appointed and it was then Cambridge City Junior Hockey Club was formed. There was now renewed impetus and membership began to increase rapidly. In 2006 the club moved to two new training venues, The Perse School and Leys School to accommodate the burgeoning membership.

14 years on the Club is still flourishing and in the 2017/18 season completed a staggering 234 one hour sessions on Sunday mornings at both The Perse School and Long Sixth Form College. Membership has increased to more than 400 with a further 50 on the waiting list. Our U16 and U18 players in conjunction with CCHC now train midweek with our senior members as part of our vision to provide a Player Pathway for the juniors. All U16 and U18 juniors are encouraged to participate in adult league fixtures on a Saturday. In 2017/18 no less than 17 juniors were playing regularly in the top 3 teams in CCHC including both Women’s and Men’s East Conference National League squads.
