A school hockey tour within the UK can be just as inspiring as any further afield. And Lee Valley is the perfect choice if you want to combine professional training sessions, friendly fixtures and plenty of opportunity for your students to be inspired by UK sport.

The Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre has been the home of English hockey since the London 2012 Olympics. The centre has two world-class hockey pitches which host the national league and knockout finals and also hosted the 2018 Hockey Women’s World Cup. Your school hockey tour to Lee Valley will include professional training sessions at this iconic venue.

Your students will then test their improved skills in friendly fixtures against local opposition. And, subject to schedules and ticket availability, you could also choose for your group to watch some live hockey action.
