Choose South Africa for your next school hockey tour and you’ll experience a vibrant nation that is passionate about all sports, including hockey. Your team will explore South Africa’s magnificent culture whilst building on their sporting experience and confidence.

Stay in Johannesburg and Cape Town, taking on local opposition of a similar standard as you go. When not on the field, you’ll visit some of South Africa’s most iconic sights, including Robben Island and Table Mountain.

You’ll even have the opportunity to visit a township and discover the reality of life there. For a school hockey tour to broaden your students’ horizons, you’d be hard-pushed to beat South Africa.
