Hockey: Masterclass with Ex-GB Coach and England Player


Jon Royce, Bede's Senior School's Director of Hockey and ex-GB Coach, hosted the Bede's Prep School girls for an afternoon of expert training.

The girls trained for two hours on the astro with Mr Royce and his son James, who plays for England at Under 21 level.


The Bede's Prep 1st VII focused on eliminating a player when attacking while the 2nds worked with Mr Royce on their hitting technique before then progressing onto eliminating players with intelligent passing and pace. 


Sharon Muxworthy, Bede's Prep School's Head of Games, said of the session, "The girls had a wonderful afternoon and now feel more prepared for their tournaments this term."
