About Hockey

Hockey is great fun and it’s no wonder it’s hugely popular across the globe. Two opposing teams try to outwit the other, with cunning and precision in manoeuvring the ball into the opposing team’s net using and using excellent coordination skills with hockey stick and ball. Team spirit alone is a great reason to play hockey, working together to achieve a common goal: Win!

This competitive and popular game is exceptional cardiovascular exercise developing excellent physical outcomes and social interaction. Teamwork is an essential element of the game for development of communication between players. Together you will improve on strength and agility as well as learn how to make quick decisions to keep up with the quick-moving game.

What Should I Wear?

We recommend that you wear comfortable footwear such as trainers or Astroturf trainers, and light, comfortable sportswear to maximise flexibility and to ensure that you are kept cool. We would also strongly advise that you bring plenty of water to keep hydrated during your session.
