Inspire your team with a school hockey tour to the Netherlands where you'll find some of the best hockey facilities in the world. 

Field hockey is big business here and the Netherlands has historically been one of the most successful in the sport, with both the men and women dominating the International Hockey Federation leaderboards.

Rotterdam Hockey Club has three water-based pitches and five sand pitches. Your team will improve their skills with professional coaching from some of the best coaches in the world. 

And with the huge depth of hockey here, you'll also find it's easy to get appropriately balanced fixtures to test out your skills against local opposition.

When you’re not on the pitch, you’ll enjoy exciting cultural activities that will help you and your team bond as a unit, making you even stronger when you get back on the field.

As a dad, I take great joy in hearing from other parents about how much their children loved our trips!– Dan Morley Sports Sales & Product Manager

Don't take our word for it …

We had used Halsbury for our previous tours and have always been impressed with the level of support and communication from Halsbury. We had everything we needed for the tours to run faultlessly. It feels like we are working together to really get the best out of the tour. You feel like partners more than customers. I would definitely recommend Halsbury! The support to the tour leaders is so good, and they are always at the end of the phone or email to answer any questions. — The Forest School, July 2023
