FREE Summer Taster Sessions

By Elodie Wakerley

FREE Summer Taster Sessions

Thinking of getting back into hockey? Or trying it for the first time? Looking for a club in Birmingham but want to try us out first?

We are running FREE taster sessions throughout July and August. These are open to everyone aged 5+, from beginners who have never picked up a hockey stick before, to those who have been away from the game for a while and want to shine up their rusty hockey skills. You’ll have the opportunity to get fitter, learn new skills and play hockey in a fun and sociable environment.

The sessions will run for 6 weeks on Tuesday evenings starting Tuesday 18th July:

  • Tuesday 18th July
  • Tuesday 25th July
  • Tuesday 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd August

Please meet at 6:30pm for a 6:45pm start at the bottom AstroTurf pitch at King Edward VI High School for Girls, Park Vale Drive, Birmingham (B5 7SP). Sessions will last approx 1 hour and will finish at 7.45pm. Your first two sessions are absolutely FREE, after that are £2 each.

We will have hockey sticks available for people to borrow but recommend that you bring shin pads with you. Wear clothes suitable for sport, and trainers or astroturf shoes if you have them. A drinks bottle is a good idea too for a quick drink during the session.
