Hockey Club takes place during the Autumn and Spring Terms on Thursdays after School. Practices are held on the Cheltenham Ladies' College astro pitch.

The club is open to all children from Year 4 to Year 6. Individual skills practice leads towards small group games. Children are introduced to the positional play required in seven a-side hockey.
