Women’s Hockey

2.30pm – 4.00pm



Fresher trials are for all girls who are thinking about joining the hockey club. They will involve some skill based exercises and then matches to assess ability. This gives the coaches and committee an idea of everyone’s skills. Trails are also a chance for freshers’ to get to know each other, as well as members of the committee and other players. After trials we will all go for drinks together to introduce ourselves a bit more. Please remember to wear sensible clothing and bring hockey sticks, shin pads and gum shields, if you have them. Don’t forget to bring water. Kickboxing Taster Session
