On Friday 17th May the Dean Close U13 girls' and boys' hockey teams travelled to Nottingham to compete in the England Hockey In2Schools National finals. It turned into an exceptional day!
As champions of Gloucestershire Lansdown Hockey Club's under 12 girls won through to represent the West region in the National Clubs competition.
Our summer Development Centres for Under 13 and Under 14 boys and girls start tonight and run through to 25th June 2019 in some venues. We are running four centres as so may of you have signed up. That you for your support. We hope everyone enjoys their hockey. See the calendar for specific dates and venues.
GHA is currently asking our clubs and schools to nominate junior players (boys and girls) for the GHA Under 13 Development Centres. The Development Centres are the first tier of the England Hockey Player Pathway. There is a link to more information on our "Juniors" page.
Congratulations to Katharine Lady Berkley School, winners of the above competition, and to The King's School, runners up. Both schools progress to the regional competition run by the West Hockey Association. Full details of the event can be viewed here.
The above competition (postponed from 28th January due to frozen pitches) has been rescheduled for 4th February. The weather may continue to be a problem. We aim to publish information here on the morning of the tournament to let people know whether the games can go ahead.
Today's festivals ARE ON. It is chilly so wrap up warm but the pitches are fine. Enjoy the day.
