Genesis Juniors is a successful and vibrant part of our club which has been running for over 30 years. The club is committed to providing a safe and fun environment for young people to participate in and enjoy sport. The junior section of the club has grown to over 350 members and is vital to the future of the club. We have 24 coaches, coaching 9 secondary school teams and primary school groups from 1st - 6th class. We train and play on two adjacent pitches in UCD from 10am - 1.30pm on a Sunday morning with all the added benefits of UCD’s excellent facilities. Our under 16’s train and play competitive matches on a Sunday afternoon in our Senior Club’s Home ground at St. Raphaela’s Secondary School, Kilmacud.
As well as the hockey, the club has a vibrant social side which at junior level can range from cinema outings and fun days to overnight trips. We believe hockey is a great way for girls to make friends and keep fit and has the potential to become a lifelong passion as it has for many of us in the club.
Please note that our members train in groups based on the class/year they attend at school.
