Coaches from the club give up their time freely on Mondays after school to help our youngsters in preparation for the Sutton Schools Hockey tournaments. Currently we have a squad of Year 7 girls, who have real potential to progress within the sport, and our boys who started out last year are getting bigger and more skilful. The club link with Streetly has seen a couple of students attending Hockey training outside of school on Sunday mornings 9.30am to 11am and Wednesday evenings from 7pm to 8pm. All training takes place at Streetly School. Please contact Miss Horspool, dhorspool@arthurterry.bham.sch.uk for more information. It is hoped that the sport can continue to develop within the school and lead to many young players enjoying what is often a ‘pre-judged’ sport. Our young players have just been rewarded for their commitment to the club and have received their FREE hockey t-shirt for attending 12 or more extra-curricular sessions. Keep up the good work and hard training. Options Timeline for Year 8 2010-2011 Friday 11th February A year Year 8 Assembly distribution of booklets.
