Winter Indoor Program

Winter Indoor Program

Our Winter Indoor program is back due to popular demand. Due to the high demand last season we are now offering TWO different venues. The program is available to both boys and girls. 

Why play indoor field hockey? 
  1. Firstly it is a technically demanding game - that has immediate positive benefits on your outdoor field hockey skills. 
  2. Secondly, it is also very aerobically challenging (you will get a great workout)
  3. Thirdly, you get to stay warm and dry during those cold winter months. 

Indoor field hockey is hugely popular throughout the top-leagues across the world, including powerhouse outdoor nations such at the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, England and Spain. It is not just “by chance” that these European nations play indoor field hockey, and also dominate the outdoor game. The technical precision, tactical awareness, and speed of indoor field hockey pays huge dividends once a player returns to the outdoor game. The best players in the world all play indoor field hockey. Unlike the outdoor version of the game, indoor rules do not allow the ball to be lifted off the ground, or traditional hitting or slapping of the ball. Instead, players must rely on their technical precision, speed and aerobic strength.
