Inspire your team with a school hockey tour to the Netherlands! Field hockey is big business here and the country has historically been one of the most successful in the sport. Rotterdam Hockey Club has three water-based pitches and five sand pitches and there are a great number of hockey clubs in and around Rotterdam and Amsterdam.

Your team will improve their skills with professional coaching and team training sessions, before putting their skills to the test against local opposition of a similar standard.

When you’re not on the pitch, you’ll enjoy exciting cultural activities which will help you and your team to bond as a unit, making you even stronger when you next 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 chose Halsbury because everything has been excellent for us for the past 15 years and we especially love the personal touch. The answer is always 'yes, we can do that for you'! As always, the experience of working with Halsbury on this tour was very good - everyone was very pleasant to talk to and helpful. They were always able to solve problems for us both in the build-up and during the tour. We consistently recommend Halsbury to other tour organisers, as they care about the tours they prepare and make sure they are tailored to our needs. — Brighton College , August 2023
