The Karori Junior Hockey Club (KJHC) is based in the suburb of Karori, Wellington, and caters for primary school aged children who live or go to school in Karori and the local suburbs. Back in the days when hockey was played on grass we used to have a home base at Karori Park, but now we play at venues with artificial surfaces all over Wellington.

KJHC is run entirely with volunteer effort and dedication.  Every team has a coach and a manager and at a club level we have coaching support and a committee that runs year-round to organise all the clubs people, logistics and happenings.
