Hockey - Girls

The girl's hockey programme at Ellesmere College has three key aims:EC_27_11_2018_208

  • inclusion and participation;
  • player development;
  • high performance.

All female pupils at Ellesmere College play hockey during the Michaelmas term, with High Performance Hockey coached all year round. Girl's hockey is accessible to players of all abilities from beginner to elite, at both recreational and competitive level. Opportunities to play and compete include social mixed hockey, inter-house hockey tournaments, inter-school hockey fixtures as well as local and regional tournaments.

Players are encouraged to join local clubs and we have strong links with Oswestry, Whitchurch, Deeside Ramblers and Shrewsbury Hockey Clubs. Additionally, girls are encouraged to join either the English or Welsh hockey player pathways to fullfil their ambitions of representing their country. We have a number of Ellesmere College players past and present playing at county, regional, national and international level.

Ellesmere Hockey has also enjoyed considerable success in winning County titles across all age groups and progressing onto the Midlands Finals Tournament. In 2018/19 the U16 team reached the final 16 in the Investec National Schools Championships.
