We strive to attain two main objectives in Hockey at RGS: commitment through participation and excellence in performance and results.
All girls in Years Seven and Eight play in competitive Hockey matches representing RGS against other schools. Players from Year Nine upwards also experience the fast, exciting game of Indoor Hockey. In all year groups, girls hockey teams play a very competitive fixture list, including participating in National Competitions. They are trained by highly experienced coaches, including Ms Sally Walton, GB Olympics Bronze medallist.
We support talented players with the Athlete Development Programme, providing one-to-one sessions and encouragement to continue Hockey outside school through strong club links and the England Hockey Player Pathway. We support girls of all year groups in the County set up and at Junior Regional Performance Centre level as well.
Our pupils see Hockey played at the highest levels and watch the sport at events such as the Maxi Fuel Super Sixes England Hockey Tournament. They also have the opportunity to play Hockey on tour in locations such as South Africa.
