Anyone that works at a school, or has children, should encourage their school to get involved in this fresh attempt by England Hockey to get more hockey in schools. This is aimed at Emerging Schools and would not be suitable for the stronger hockey schools.
For those that are going to promote hockey within their school there is also a free school teacher coaching course in April…..
