Hockey 5's Festival - July Holidays

Hockey 5's Programme (July School Holidays)

After a very successful launch of this programme in the April School Holidays, we will run this programme again in the July School Holidays.

We will host a variety of programmes to cater for our various year groups, being held on different days to create options to be involved in one or more days:

  • Year 5 - 6
  • Year 7 - 8
  • Year 9 - 10

The Festival will run in a simple format of one game on and one game off; with the last games of the day being possible 'finals'.

Hockey 5's is a new and exciting format with pathways to World Cups. It is an opportunity to get a taste for the game and develop your all round hockey ability in a fast and exciting new format. It is short and fast variant of field hockey which will reap benefits. The 5's will run as an all day programme with 30 minute games; one game on, one game off. 

This programme is open to all those in year 7-8 and Year 9-10 to take part in a holiday programme before the various tournaments in October.

Pathways
