We run School Holiday Camps for children aged 6 to 14 years. This year we will also be organising a number of youth development hockey camps aimed at different ages and abilities.
In the past, our camps have included game play and skill-based course appealing to young players of all standards. They’re open to all members and non-members.
These clubs teach ‘England hockey Core Skills’ through a range a fun activities
We run after schools clubs in local primary schools. Our clubs teach England Hockey Core Skills through a range of fun activities, and give particularly state school children added opportunity.
We can support schools by helping with curriculum time coaching. We are in the process of developing a six-session program to develop lesson delivery step-by-step in a safe, supportive and exciting way.
We leave schools with lesson plans and further ideas, with additional England Hockey materials available to support teachers. Contact Rex or Debbie to organise a meeting time to discuss further.
2020-21 is a transformation year for the club and hockey in schools. We plan, with the help of local schools and Sussex and England Hockey Associations, to launch an annual inter-school competition for Junior Schools children aged 10 to 12 years within the Worthing district.
Going forward we also plan to expand this initiative to include children from 8 years old at the lower level, and to 14 years and above at high schools level.
With these two initiatives, our aim is to put hockey back into state schools, without impacting on the precious financial resources of the schools themselves.
