Plenty Of Hockey Talent At Princethorpe
Every year we are delighted to hear of pupils’ triumphs securing much-coveted places in the County Hockey squads.
Earning representative honours is no mean feat. All those selected will have school and club commitments; they will have attended extra trials and training sessions before finally being chosen for the squad.
Those who win through participate in England Hockey’s ‘Player Pathway’, a programme that provides Development Centres and Academy Centres as progressive staged steps to help all junior hockey players realise their potential.
Head of Girls’ Games, Jen Law, comments, "It is fantastic to see our pupils’ passion for hockey, they show great enthusiasm and excellent technical skills which is regularly recognised by the County selection teams. I am really pleased to have such a depth of talent to call on for the school’s fixture programme."
