Hockey – Week 2
Cost: £169 (Early-Bird: £152)
Mad about hockey? Then you probably think it should be played all year round! So whether you want to sharpen your skills, take your game to the next level, or just enjoy the great game, come and play some hockey this summer. This course promises to be fun-filled and action-packed with lots of games and challenges.
England Hockey have produced guidelines for running hockey training, and as a result we are making some changes to this course to allow for pupils to be able to work in the required groups of 6. We will now be running 2 separate groups of 18 for this course, with David Bennett being the course tutor for one course, and Nicky Bareham joining us as the course tutor for the second group. Nicky is a Perse PE teacher and an experienced hockey player and coach. Within the groups of 18, we will subdivide the pupils into groups of 6, and each of those groups will have their own ‘coach’ in one of our Old Persean assistant tutors. We will continue to monitor advice from England Hockey.
David Bennett fell in love with hockey at school and has been playing ever since. He has played hockey to regional premier league level and has been involved in coaching since he was 17. He coaches hockey at The Perse and still loves playing.
Nicky Bareham obtained her degree in Sports Science and Biology from Essex University and is now a PE coordinator and Assistant Head of Hockey at the Perse. She is a keen hockey player who is currently a member of Bishops Stortford Hockey Club. Out of choice she would play in midfield although frequently plays up front, as she enjoys scoring goals for fun!
