Suburban Hockey in Southwark!


We are delighted to announce that Suburban Hockey will be starting a new programme of hockey and fitness coaching in Southwark primary schools at the end of April.  We will be running a 6 week programme, in conjunction with the London PE and School Sports Network.    30 primary schools have signed up for our coaching and we are currently finalising the timetable to ensure we can offer as many perfect timeslots as possible!

This coaching programme would not have been possible without the support of a Big Lottery Fund grant and sponsorship from Surrey Hockey Association.

It is also our intention to set up a regular out of school “club” session for children who have participated in the programme and wish to carry on with their hockey.  Further details at a later date.
