Hockey - Girls
Please also see our Latest Hockey news.
Hockey is a major sport at Shrewsbury with girls excelling at all age groups. The girls play hockey predominately in the Michaelmas Term and usually have between 12 and 18 matches a term on Wednesdays and Saturdays. We play a number of schools including Repton, Moreton Hall, Wrekin College, Denstone College and King’s School Chester.
The girls compete in numerous county, regional and invitational tournaments, including the National 6s Championships.
In the second year that Shrewsbury School became fully co-educational, both the 1st XI and the U16s qualified for the Midlands Regionals.
From 2016 we will have a brand new astro-turf which will be used along side our current astro to support all girls in their development. Specialist coaches work closely with all age groups, pushing girls new to the sport as well as developing excellence.
Forthcoming Hockey fixtures for the current term are displayed below.
More detailed information about each of the fixtures can be found on our Sports Calendar. (Note: Viewing the Calendar either by Week or by Day gives you more information at a glance than the default monthly view.)
If you are following a particular team or teams, you can also select their fixture list from the Hockey Fixtures and Results page, which includes team selections (where you see this blue image ) and location maps for away matches. It is possible to download a team's fixture list onto your personal calendar on your PC or mobile device, which will then be synchronised with the master fixture list whenever your device is connected to the internet.
