Elaine Cox aka Coxy has been heading the U8s in the club for the past few years. She runs a tight ship and with approx 50 kids in this section its just what they need.  This is a key development stage for children in sport and we can assure you our U8s are safe in Coxys hands! It is very obvious by the smiles and laughter at U8 training the fun Coxy brings to each session. 


Coxy is also our Club Childrens Officer so if you have any concerns or issues please do not hesitate to get in touch with her.

U10 Girls

Sharon has been looking after the U10s for the last couple of years and her vast experience in coaching at both junior and senior player is very apparent. Sharon manages to find the perfect mix of hard work and fun for the kids at this age level which is key to their development. Sharon is really demonstrating to these young girls the spirit of sport and the passion each of us should have for our club.


Sharon is also our Junior Co-Ordinator this year, so not only is she looking after the U10 girls, she is pretty much looking after all 200 kids!! No pressure Shar!!

U10 & U12 Boys

This year we have merged the u10 & u12 boys in order to keep moving forward with the development of our boys section within the club. We are delighted to have two new coaches on board to lead the charge - Seanie & Luke, who are not only doing a fantastic job at coaching, but perhaps more importantly being a positive role model for mens hockey.

U12 Girls

Pat has once again taken on the brave job of looking after our U12 girls this year. Again this is a key development stage in sport and there is no better man to be leading the group. Pat's enthusiam and positive attitude is very apparent therefore we have no doubt the girls will do really well this year.

U14 Boys

This is the very first year in the clubs history that we have a stand alone boys team and we are delighted to have Tony & Melissa coaching what we hope will eventually be the first Newbridge Mens team. 

Both coaches bring enthusiasm and experience to this group of young men, guaranteeing that the future of boys hockey in Newbridge is very bright.

U14 Girls (1st years)

Not only is Lynda an accomplished senior player, but she is an excellent coach. Lynda has moved up to U14 girls this year to build on the hard work put in last year with her U12 group. This is a very exciting year for both Lynda and her team as they move from blitzes to Xtreme 8 style games.

U14 Girls (2nd years)

Orla is once again looking after the U14s, but this year she has the valuable assistance of Kerry Ann Murtagh.

Part of the furniture at this stage in the club, Orla is a longstanding and valued coach. Described as by some of her players as their hockey Mammy, Orla is busy preparing these 2nd year girls for another fantastic year of hockey.


Kerry Ann started off in Newbridge HC as a junior member and over the years has developed in to a fantastic player. 


As if Orla didnt have enough to be doing, she is a hockey coach in Newbridge College and also leads our TY Youth Leadership programme which has been a proven success over the last number of years.

Gary is a brand new face to Newbridge this year and we are delighted to welcome him on board as our U16/U17 girls coach. A proven track record of coaching at this level, as well as being a current player himself with Weston Hockey Club we truly believe Gary can do a fantastic job in developing these young ladies in to brilliant senior players.
