Christ College has been invited to lead on the delivery of a Satellite 360º Centre for hockey players with outstanding potential, not only from within Christ College, but also from surrounding schools and clubs in the area.
The 360º Centre will commence on the evening of Monday 22nd September and will be led by Christ College’s resident Hockey Professional, Chris Marriott, who oversaw an hugely successful 2013/14 hockey season at the school last year and recently coached an England U18 Girls Team to a bronze medal at the Sainsbury’s UK Games.
Chris said:”I am incredibly pleased that we are able to provide this opportunity for talented players in the area, who for many reasons have not always been able to engage with formal hockey talent development pathways. We already have a number of Welsh Internationals amongst our pupils here and I hope that this centre will provide them and others with the training environment they need to help them to reach their potential and to get themselves onto the radar of the Wales Team coaches.”
Earlier this month, Christ College pupils Tom Wood, Fred Davies and Ben Foxley were all selected to represent Wales U18s at the Sainsbury’s UK Schools Games which were held in Manchester.
Head of Christ College, Emma Taylor added: “Hockey Wales have been incredibly generous in including us in this exciting initiative. We fully intend to repay their trust in our outstanding hockey pedigree and our brilliant coaching staff!”
During the 2013/14 hockey season, the Christ College boys U18s, U14s and a mixed U12s were all crowned Welsh National Champions, and the Christ College girls U18s and U14s are the reigning Powys Regional Champions.
