Delivering in FE Colleges

There are a number of delivery options for Further Education or Higher Education Institutions.
College or university clubs
Traditional hockey delivery within colleges and universities takes the form of clubs. These clubs normally play 11-a-side matches against other local colleges and universities. Click here for more information on the Great Britain Coaching Club Programme which will provide coaches with up-to-date resources and content specific to the environment in which they are coaching.

Affiliation to the England Hockey is open to any college or university Club. Please see the affiliation second of the website here for further information.

Competitions
College and university teams often play in national, regional, county or local leagues. To find out more about leagues in your area and their entry regulations please see the competitions section of the website here.

AoC Sport tuns a range of hockey competitions for colleges. For more information see their website here.

British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) runs a range of hockey competitions for universities. For more information see their website here.

Rush Hockey/Intramural Activity
England Hockey have developed Rush Hockey, a small-sided game which can be played indoors or outdoors and is suitable for intramural type competition as a way of engaging new players as well as retaining players that are not able to or wanting to commit to a 11-a-side team.

Club Community Links
As part of our Club Community links programme we are always keen to try and link local FE and HE Institutions to their nearest hockey club to try and ensure sustainable and ongoing opportunities for players when they leave college or university.
