Hockey

The boys play most of their hockey in the Lent Term. They are coached in skills and drills on the astro or in the sports hall on two afternoons a week.

The Under 11 boys concentrate on individual stick skills and positional play whilst the seniors receive much more coaching in team play and advanced individual skills. The younger boys, Under 9, often receive one session per week focusing on stick skills.

The girls play most of their hockey in the Michaelmas Term. They are coached skills and drills on the astro or in the sports hall on four afternoons a week.

The junior girls Under 9 concentrate on individual stick skills and positional play whilst the older girls receive much more coaching in team play and advanced individual skills.

Many of the children play for local clubs in Tavistock and Plymouth and the School enjoys an excellent relationship with Tavistock Hockey Club providing opportunities for children to play hockey throughout the year.
