Boys and girls in the Peewee league are aged 12yrs and 13yrs as at 31st December that year. The hockey continues to be non-checking and caters to new players and those continuing on from Atoms. Depending on numbers each season, the league will consist of 2 or more teams playing under the Canberra Phoenix name.
This year the Head Coach is Mike Sargeant and the league Coordinator is Sarah Mohr. Training is on Tuesday evenings from 6pm and games are on Sundays from 4:45pm. Please refer to the schedule for more information on exact times.
At this age division, players can be selected to represent ACT in National Tournaments against the other states. The Phillip Ginsberg National Championship is played annually.
Tryouts are held for all state teams and players will be required to attend additional trainings and purchase their state team apparel.
Additional Peewee only tournaments are held through the year other clubs that local players may participate in as part of the Canberra Phoenix Team. IHA also run National Development Camps each January – this is by invitation only.
Playing up an age division
On occasion a player may be invited by an IHACT coach to play up only one age division for local leagues or travel tournaments; for Peewees the next age division is Bantams (this is a checking age division.) Players who are invited to play up must complete a IHACT Playing Up form and continue to participate in their current age division for the remainder of the season. There is a cost for a player to play up in a second age division.
The IHACT Playing Up form can be downloaded here.
