With the exception of the Junior Academy (school year 4 and below) who only train on Sundays, all outfield Colts (school year 5 and above)  are expected to attend a weekly technical coaching session for 1-1.5 hours. During this time, the coaching content is delivered from the Colts’ coaching syllabus prepared by the Club’s Director of Hockey. Actual delivery is carried out by a team of qualified coaches, supported by international players. Colts are taught in squads. Generally the session comprises teaching of a specific technical skill, finishing with a game related to that skill.

Separate sessions are organised for training goal keepers.

We endeavour to meet our own policy of maintaining a ratio of twelve Colts to every one coach. This may be altered by the Director of Colts, Will Fulker, in consultation with the Colt and their parents.

Other pitches used by SHC Colts:

 The postcode for KGS Finlay Pitch (Summer Road, Thames Ditton) is KT7 0RD.

The postcode for Reeds School (Sandy Lane, Cobham) is KT11 2ES.

 If you have any queries about the training schedule and which group your child should be attending then please contact Will Fulker by email:   william.fulker@gmail.com


For the Sunday schedule – which is updated weekly during the season, please go to the  COLTS FIXTURES page of this website and click on the link for Sunday schedules.

The intention for the Sunday one-hour sessions is to play a game that may be a League/Cup/Friendly match against another Club side at home or away. Junior players tend to play mini hockey at 7-a-side, whereas the older ages are exposed to 11-a-side. If no external game is available we often arrange an internal game during which coaching tips may be provided.

With the expansion of the Colts’ section an extra pitch off-site (the “Finlay Pitch“) has been acquired for matches so allowing a more expansive programme of matches and training. Click here to view a map and directions to the Finlay Pitch.  We are now also using the pitch at Reeds School on Sunday mornings.

Please check the Fixtures section of the website for a weekly update on the weekend training schedule as the Sunday timetable below is for general guidance only and will vary according to when a match may be scheduled.
