About East District Youth Hockey

East District Youth Hockey committee organises local competitions and development opportunities to support Scottish Hockey's Player Pathway. There is an elected youth committee which reports to the main East District Committee. We try to encourage a vibrant hockey community that caters to all ability levels in all areas in the east of Scotland down to the borders. The aim is to share the volunteer roles and elected committee positions across all East District Clubs. If you would like to volunteer or have any feedback, please contact one of our volunteers on the Youth Committee.


Representing East District

Players are nominated by clubs and schools to attend East District Youth Hockey development sessions. Boys and girls teams at U14, U16 and U18 are selected from the development squads to compete in the Scottish Hockey Youth Inter District Events. If you would like to find out more about how to represent East District, contact the girls' or boys' convenor.  There is a forum for East District players, coaches, administrators, parents and fans on the East District Youth Hockey Facebook Group
