Schools Program ‘Tricks 4 Sticks’
Tricks 4 Sticks is a schools programme to introduce field hockey to school going girls and boys. In particular, to non-hockey playing schools. It is supported by Hockey Ireland and Sport Ireland’s ‘Women in Sport’. Tricks 4 Sticks sends qualified hockey coaches into local schools for an agreed number of weeks. Representing Waterford Hockey Club, our coaches deliver a fantastic high energy hockey program helping to create links to our local club. At the end of the programme the pupils are invited to visit our club grounds whilst the school also receives a ‘Tricks 4 Sticks pack’ to encourage them to continue playing hockey.
