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.  

2023 season registration is now open

Please note – there are separate links for years 3-4 and 5-8, please use the correct one, as we are unable to transfer a player in the system (this has been set up by WHA).

Payment is now directly via PlayHQ when you register your child. However, if you are experiencing financial hardship and need support with your child’s fees to enable them to play hockey, please get in touch with to us by email.

More information on PlayHQ is available here.

Years 3-4


Years 5-8


Pre-season training years 5 – 8

This focused, pre-season block, has weekly focus areas allowing players of all abilities to brush up their skills and learn new things as they prepare for the upcoming season. Sessions are held at the National Hockey Stadium and will be led by Wellington Hockey representative coaches and players.

Note: This is entirely optional but we recommended it for our year 7 players as it includes goalie training for years 7 and 8.  Being a goalie is a shared team position and this is a great opportunity to give it a go and get comfortable in a low pressure situation. 

When: Sessions will be held on Sundays from 19 March to 2 April from 4.30pm till 6pm.

How: Sign up here.

Cost: $50.
