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

The Club is open to all children from Year 5 and 6.  Individual skills practice leads towards small group games.  Children are introduced to the positional play required in seven a-side hockey.  This younger age group play within a mixed boys' and girls' team, and play two fixtures during each term of the Hockey season.

Progression follows to the Year 5 and 6 squad.  Girls' Hockey takes priority during the Autumn term, leaving Boys' hockey the priority sport for the Spring term.  Skills are developed during further individual practises and drills in addition to tactical and positional awareness for the match.  There is further emphasis on team work and match preparation.
