With over 150 children ageing from 4 to 16, we are looking for willing volunteers to get involved, it does not matter if you are an elite England level hockey player or have never picked up a stick, all we are looking for is enthusiasm and excitement to preach the wonderful game!

The Kestrels train round the corner from the University on Sunday mornings 9-12:30, across the first two terms. We are a volunteer ran club, with experienced coaches who are willing to develop you as a coach. Each week you will be assigned to support an age group, to start with this will be just be to support the 'lead' coach, to hopefully develop you into a 'lead' coach of the future!

- Fun, safe environment to learn how to coach and experience working with young people,
