2011 UK School Games - Sheffield


At 11am on Thursday 1st September defending hockey champions Ulster got the 2011 Sainsbury's UK School Games (UKSG) under way against opponents Scotland.

The multisport nature of the UKSG provides hockey with a unique opportunity to expose its athletes, team managers, coaches, physios, umpires, officials and internal staff to the challenges and positive experiences similar to those of the Olympic and Commonwealth Games.

England U18 National

Hockey players are selected for the UKSG through the regional/national talent development programmes in each of the home nations, which culminate in inter-regional competitions where players play for their own region. Players are identified to join the regional programmes after impressing in competitions for either their school or club, with national junior championship run in each home nation.

There are four teams involved in the competition with players representing England, Scotland, Ulster and Wales.

Results will be posted at the end of each match in our international results section.
