Supporting School Hockey

Ipswich School Sports Centre aims to support schools by offering children a high quality sporting experience which inspires them to get active and involved in physical activity, beginning the foundations of life-long participation.

Our services that we can offer include:

  • Hockey Coaching in the Curriculum and After School Clubs

  • Teacher Development & Training CPD

  • Primary and Secondary Schools opportunities to use top class facilities at a reduced rate (transport could also be arranged to and from school)

Hockey Coaching in the Curriculum and After School Clubs

The aim of the programme is to introduce and inspire students to play hockey, and to give the students and teachers a good base of knowledge on which they can build their confidence to play and teach. The programme can be delivered either as an after school club or within the curriculum for school years 2-6 and will be structured to your schools specific requirements.

At the end of the year let your students demonstrate what they have learnt and how far they have developed by coming to our ISSC Rushmere Centre and using our facilities free of charge for a session.

  • Curriculum – £20 per hour
  • After School Club (within Ipswich) – £2.00 per child
  • After School Club (outside Ipswich) – £2.50 per child

Combinations of curriculum and after school clubs will be priced individually.

Teacher Development & Training CPD

If your school would like to develop a greater knowledge and understanding of the game and build confidence in your staff to deliver fun, engaging, progressive lessons, then ISSC can support your school.

Opportunities to use Top Class Facilities

ISSC is open to all schools who are currently searching for top class facilities to
provide sporting opportunities for their students at both primary and secondary level. We can help arrange transport to and from our site and the use of our site for a reduced rate. Schools could use this site for sports day, one off sessions, or regular sessions for Physical Education or after school clubs.
