Read why Peterborough Regional College deliver Rush Hockey and the widespread benefits for the college

There is a new way to play hockey! Forget itchy PE shorts, laps around the courts and games in the rain. This is hockey, but not as you know it. Rush Hockey is fast, friendly and seriously good fun. Furthermore, it is five-a-side and can be played indoors or outdoors.
Rush Hockey fits around your students. The informal nature of the game means players can get their hockey fix at times to suit them - it does not have to be the same players each week. With only a few simple rules which are easy to pick up, Rush Hockey aims to get people playing quickly.

Rush Hockey can support your college or sixth form to promote health and wellbeing to students and staff in a number of ways:

  • Add to your student experience! Smaller teams = a great work out. Many players tell us they prefer it to the gym
  • You decide what type of sessions to run. Turn up and player, inter-tutor sessions and lots of colleges are starting to organise fixtures against other colleges
  • The pop-up, pop-down nature of Rush Hockey means that games can be set up whenever your students have a spare 20 minutes to play
  • The use of student activators to promote and deliver sessions supports the development of your students in terms of employability by providing them with organisational and leadership skills
The Rush Hockey equipment adds to the players' experience. The design of the sticks allows them to be used as an alternative to bibs. The bigger, lighter ball balls are suitable on a range of surfaces. Players who are new to the game have told us they are easier to control and less intimidating than traditional hockey balls. The smaller Rush Hockey goals means there is no need for goalkeepers and they can be set up and taken down in only a couple of minutes. Each Rush Hockey pitch pack comes in a handy kit bag with wheels for easy transportation. 

All equipment is ordered directly from our official suppliers Youth Sport Direct. Visit their website here and search Rush Hockey.
