Hockey is the major game for girls in the Advent Term and for boys in the Lent Term.
The School fields 17 teams for the girls and 13 teams for the boys, allowing every pupil who wishes to play hockey to represent the School in matches against other schools on a regular basis.
The standard of hockey at Rugby is high, and we compete amongst the top hockey schools in the country. In 2016, our girls’ XI and U16 sides took the County Championship titles and qualified for the regional stages. The XI progressed further to reach the semi-finals of the penultimate round of the national competition. This same team has also been involved in the U19 Independent Schools’ National Cup for which they are currently in preparation for the semi-final fixture.
We also have a great number of individuals playing at an elite level, with many pupils having achieved selection for England Hockey Academy Centres, Performance Centres, Futures Cup Tournaments and the England U16 and England U18 National Squads.
We offer a number of leading coaching facilities, including one-to-one training, video analysis, strength and conditioning and specific skills sessions to support our players. The School has also invested in three, top class synthetic turf pitches, providing an excellent infrastructure that enables us host a number of tournaments throughout the year.
