Olympian to join Oxford Youngsters for Hockey Open Day – press release

Oxford Hockey Club are holding their annual Junior Club Day this Sunday, 16th September, and look forward to welcoming Team GB’s Nic White as their special guest. Nic will be bringing along her Olympic bronze medal for the youngsters to see, as well as helping to coach the sessions.

The club’s open day will also see the junior players use the brand new astroturf pitch at Oxford Brookes University for the first time. The pitch has been re-laid over the summer, and now has a high quality playing surface and a new spectator area.

Oxford Hockey Club are committed to the development of hockey and creating their own legacy after the London 2012 Olympics, so are keen to welcome players of all standards, plus any newcomers to the sport. There will be plenty of coaches on hand at the open day to explain the basics even if children have never picked up a stick before (and they can borrow a stick!).

The timings are as follows:

Under8/U10 Boys and Girls: 9.30-10.30
Under 12 Boys and Girls: 10.30-11.30
Under 14 Boys: 11.30-12.30
Under 14 Girls: 10.00-11.30 (at Headington School)
