Gresham’s Hockey meets the needs of all pupils. Two floodlit Astroturf pitches, one newly laid in 2018, allow training matches to continue all year round. Gresham’s Prep School regularly hosts county and regional tournaments. Hockey is the major game for girls (Michaelmas) and boys (Lent), with a full fixture list that includes matches against schools from across the region.
All levels of players receive excellent coaching and have the opportunity to represent the school in regular matches. The hockey programme is led by Director of Hockey, Joe Cowan, who ensures that the sport is fun, accessible and that all the children make excellent progress. There are a wealth of opportunities for enthusiastic players including holiday booster sessions and performance camps.
The Under 13A and Under 11A squads face consistently strong opposition from schools within and outside our region. They also participate in local, regional and national competitions, with much success.
Details of our upcoming fixtures can be found on the School Calendar.
In 2021, our U13 girls were crowned IAPS National Champions!
