Colts TrainingSUMMER TERM HOCKEY 2015
While we are dreaming of warm weather and sunshine, we are happy to say that the Summer Term Hockey programme has now been finalised and SHC Colts members will be receiving emails from Will Fulker with details. The full timetable is attached HERE
Term begins week commencing 19th April and running through to the week commencing 12th July. (Note: no hockey on Sunday 23rd May or Week of 24th May as this is half term).
Each session will focus on one particular skill and finish with games. The hockey sessions will be directed by Will Fulker along with very able assistants who include International and Premier League players.
Our youngest members will have sessions on a Sunday morning only, while the older groups will have a weekday skills session in addition to a Sunday session. It should ensure a very intense and enriching learning experience in pleasant weather!
These sessions are extra sessions which are not included in the annual subscription and are therefore paid separately. Sessions are open to members and non members. Members should register for the sessions via the online database and can also pay for the sessions that way too. Payment should be made at the time of registering. Non members should also register via the membership page of the SHC website using the New Members drop-down box to select a Summer Hockey option.
Please log into your child’s account and select the Payment option at the top of the screen. You will then be offered a menu of Optional Extras (left hand side of screen) which shows the Summer Hockey group that your child has been assigned. Please select this. You will be directed to a registration form with your child’s details. Please check this is accurate, the click Submit at the bottom of the screen. This will enable the payment option for you so you can now make the payment required to Surbiton HC. Booking is on a first come basis, so please register soon.
Do note that you can still make the payment by direct bank transfer if you prefer (details on the website as before), but you need to submit the form online to register your child’s participation. The cost of paying by bank transfer will be the same as the online option for this activity.
Please contact me if you are unable to do both sessions and need to have the cost revised. (firstname.lastname@example.org). Queries about the hockey programme should be directed to Will. Enjoy your Summer Hockey!

Colts’ 2014/15 Training Timetable .
The 2014/15 Season ends on Sunday 29th March.
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: email@example.com

For the Sunday schedule – which is updated weekly, 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.
