Pembroke Wanderers

Hockey for boys and girls from Junior Infants to 6th Year

Mission Statement

Pembroke Juniors devoted to creating an respectful, safe, friendly and supportive community for young people - from Junior Infants (boys & girls) to 4th Year (boys) and 6th Year (girls) - to learn and develop their team and individual hockey skills.

Players are coached to respect the game, coaches, team mates, opponents and officials whilst developing a sense of competitiveness, team camaraderie and sportsmanship. Pembroke coaches aim to provide a high standard of coaching that creates a positive, fun and challenging experience for each player.

We strive to create a community where opportunities for excellence exist, healthy competitiveness encouraged, friendships are forged and a sense of fun and enthusiasm for the game of hockey is fostered.
