A school pro training hockey tour to HC Rotterdam offers your team the opportunity both to experience the Dutch passion for hockey and to learn from one of the best teams in the country!

HC Rotterdam’s men’s team play in the Hoofdklasse, the highest level of Dutch field hockey. On this tour, your young hockey players will enjoy professionally coached training sessions run by the club’s own coaches. And you’ll then be able to put what you’ve learnt into practice when you take on local opposition of a similar standard.

As well as all this, you can also choose to add tickets to watch a match, giving your hockey players a fantastic insight into the local hockey culture and the talent that makes the Netherlands a global force in the world of field hockey.

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 …

Superb 4 day trip to Barca / Salou 24th September. Travelled with 36 pupils who had a fantastic time at the Cambrills Sports Village, fixtures, coaching,theme park, nou camp etc. Every aspect of the tour was superbly organised and went to plan and all as described. Great communication, planning and value for money from Halsbury. I will be doing the same again next year with them. Brilliant trip, thank you to Halsbury, Kate, Maria for a hassle free well organised school tour. — Wheelers Lane Technology College , September 2023
