"We would like some more players, but we've got enough to proceed," she said.
"At this stage I'm not sure how the juniors will be sorted, but there will definitely be two senior divisions, one will be a premier division.
"We hope to have some Spitfires players in the premier division pending their draw."
Saturday's clinic starts at 2pm with hockey sticks provided for new players.
