Hockey at King's Hall

The construction of our full-sized astroturf hockey pitch has revolutionised the teaching and learning of hockey amongst both boys and girls. We have a full fixture list involving teams from the age of eight up to our 1st XI who are twelve or thirteen years of age, and everyone is very competitive.

A number of our coaches work across both schools on a regular basis to offer advice and take training sessions. On some match afternoons we have to 'stack' matches three in a row in order to play all the games on our astroturf pitch.

 

 

Girls' Hockey

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.

 

 

Progress & Achievement

Currently, there are six staff coaching across the six year groups, overseeing 13 teams. Matches are played from Year 4 upwards, with Year 3 participating in a Festival of Hockey with local schools. In each year group, all girls will represent the school at their own level. Recognition of performance is important, with end of term awards made for progress and achievement. In addition, Junior Colours, Senior Colours and Major Colours are awarded to deserving players.
