Girls

Girls' hockey is for all enthusiasts! Training and coaching takes place as part of the School's activity programme, occupying two separate sessions each week and open to lower and senior school students.

The coaching programme is committed to providing opportunities for all students to take part and the sessions are designed to improve skills, knowledge and performance to whatever level they desire.

Performance Levels

Boys

At Gordonstoun boys' hockey has a tradition of success. This is facilitated by a first class artificial playing surface, a challenging fixture list and talented coaches. The large pool of accomplished players is therefore developed and fully stretched.

Boys play hockey as their main sport in the Spring term. Practice sessions and warm-up matches do, however, take place in the autumn term. Each group trains twice a week in the spring term with extra sessions when needed. Although we have fielded up to six teams only four have regular Saturday fixtures. All senior and most junior fixtures are played on Astroturf pitches.

The fixture list includes all the major Scottish independent schools. We also play local club and adult teams. The success of teams, particularly at senior level, are a credit to both players and staff. A major feature of the season is the Scottish Schools Cup, a competition we have excelled in, reaching the final in 2005. There is also the Chameleon Six-a-side tournament where we have also traditionally done well.

Boys are therefore fully prepared for hockey outside Gordonstoun. Many continue to play after leaving school with a number gaining representative honours for county and country at all levels. Most notable in recent years is Justus Scharovsky, who represented Germany in the 2004 Olympic Games.
