Hockey is a vibrant sport at Sherborne, with teams competing up to national level across all age groups. The speed at which the modern game is played necessitates careful attention to strength and conditioning among top players, ensuring that our hockey-playing boys are at the very peak of fitness.
Whether they play for the First XI in England Hockey’s National Championship or for a team whose focus is on enjoying the match against other local players, our boys gain a huge amount from their time on the hockey pitch. The teams share a spirit of camaraderie and mutual respect, and always behave excellently towards their opponents.
Indeed, Sherborne’s hockey players are renowned for their courtesy and good humour, as well as their grace in victory and defeat. Which just goes to show: what happens on the sports field participates in, and replicates, the whole School culture.
For elite players, there is ample opportunity to train with some of the finest up-and-coming players in the country. Our coaching team includes former internationals: people who understand the commitment that goes into competing at the very highest level. They are passionate about the sport, and want every player to enjoy it for its own sake.
Boys also have the opportunity to play in the National Indoor competitions in our fantastic new indoor sports hall. They share training and fixtures with Sherborne Girls, as well as a range of fixtures against local club and school sides. Additionally, boys have the opportunity to train and play throughout the year with Yeovil & Sherborne Hockey Club in the West Premier Leagues.
