Glasgow School of Sport’s Hockey programme focuses on the development of core skills and techniques, as well as the technical and tactical aspects of hockey. Although our main focus is on outdoor hockey, we incorporate an indoor hockey module for all year groups during the indoor season where we focus on specific indoor skills and systems of play. Extra curricular and club hockey sessions also form part of the hockey programme, as it is during these sessions that real time decision-making, tactical concepts, game knowledge & understanding is applied.
Hockey in keeping with other sports offered at Glasgow School of Sport, provides a holistic programme for the development of our young athletes. Through an individualised approach to programme development and delivery, our coaching staff aim to encourage each pupil selected into the school to reach their full sporting and academic potential. This individualised, skill based approach is complementary with the Scottish Hockey Performance Pathway incorporating the “Stronger Game “ model and models used by both the West Area Institute of Sport and the Scottish Institute of Sport, into whose programmes we hope our athletes will progress.
Although the primary entry point into the hockey programme is at S1, we also offer entry points at S3, S5 and S6. These later entry points have proved to be very popular and allow for a variety of entry levels and the opportunity for late developers to join the school. Hockey applicants applying for late entry will be individually assessed and placed in the programme at the appropriate level. Read on for more information on our Hockey Programme...
