Girls from Year 3 to Year 8 play 7-a-side hockey at King’s Hall during the Michaelmas Term on a sand-dressed artificial turf pitch which was built in 2007. The main aim of the teaching programme is for the girls to learn the skills of the game in an enjoyable and positive manner. Individual skills are taught, reinforced and transferred into game situations, promoting a sense of achievement and progress.
Talent is recognised, and pupils are put forward to trial for the Junior Development Course where they can be selected to attend the Junior Academy Course and ultimately gain county selection and beyond. We regularly have girls achieving selection for the JDC and JAC groups.
