Girls' Hockey

[ Boys' Hockey ]

Hockey is the main sport in the Autumn Term for girls at Blundell's throughout the 11-18 age range. The Years 9-13 have four games sessions per week, which will include at least one match against the top teams in the South West of the country. The Sixth Form girls can opt for other sports but Blundellians frequently opt to continue their team sports and can field four senior teams. The Years 7 & 8 have three sessions per week. The school can boast two excellent all-weather floodlit astro-turf pitches, one of which is national competition standard, the other a sand-based. The hockey coaching programme is complimented by a fully qualified Strength & Conditioning coach and a fully equipped modern Fitness Suite.

There is a strong coaching set up throughout the school, right from their very first days in the U12s where Mrs Klinkenberg, who previously coached both Millfield and Blundell's 1st teams and played International Hockey herself, introduces the girls to the Blundell's healthily competitive attitude towards team sports. We endeavour to develop depth and breadth of character, encouraging resilience, optimism, self-control, respect, leadership and sportsmanship through playing games, learning skills and taking part in competitive fixtures: a 'sport-for-all' philosophy underpins the school's comprehensive sports programme.

Blundell's girls have often reached the Area and National Finals and at all age groups are the team that the rest of Devon have to try to beat. Many girls each year represent Devon and often the SW and National teams too.
