Fun Sticks – School Year 1&2

2020 Funsticks Information & Registration will be updated February 2020 (School Year 1 & 2)

Harewood Juniors welcomes registrations for our boys and girls year 1/2 Funsticks programme.  This is where it all begins!  A first taste of hockey, learning skills, playing in mini teams, and some end of season exchanges against other clubs.  It runs from May the 11th through to August 10th, excluding the school holidays and Queen’s birthday.
The programme runs every Saturday at Nunweek Park, Wooldridges Road from 9-10am.  You will need to arrive by 8:45am each morning to sign in.  Children get a free T Shirt and  wear shorts and sneakers.  Hockey sticks are supplied on a weekly basis for anyone needing them. Just Hockey provides a junior starter kit which includes a hockey stick, shin pads, and mouth guard.
If you are unsure about whether your child will enjoy it, please register first, come down and have a go and we can assess from there if they wish to continue before you are invoiced.
We look forward to welcoming you to this super fun programme!

This is a programme run by the club for children in school years 1 & 2.
It is played on Saturday mornings from 8.50-9.50am on the Nunweek Park turf no 1. This involves lots of drills and fun games! This is perfect for young kids wanting to give hockey a go and have fun.
It is a great pathway for when the kids move into the Mini Sticks competition in year 3.

The Harewood Fun Sticks has become an institution in Christchurch hockey over the years and it has introduced nearly 2000 children to the game over the last 25 years. Many have gone on to play for Canterbury in underage and senior teams and we now also have NZ players who have come through Harewood Funsticks.


The Club has 3 main aims for children at Fun Sticks Hockey.

– Development of physical fitness and hand/eye coordination

– Development of some of the skills of the game

– Enjoyment of hockey.




There are no uniform requirements. Mouth guards and Shin pads are compulsory. Suitable sneakers, not rugby boots as they play on astro turf.


Should Harewood Hockey Funsticks need to be cancelled it will be broadcast on Newstalk ZB, 8am, Saturday mornings
