Alongside Football, Hockey is a major sport in the Spring Term. Hockey is played throughout the school with 10 teams in total ranging from Lower School to Senior 1st XI. The staff and boys work well together and enjoy Hockey at the College even on the coldest days of the year.
Shiplake hosts midweek matches at the club grounds of Reading HC, Sonning HC and Henley HC which are only a short drive away, while at the school the Astroturf surface is a great arena for skill development and the venue for small-sided Inter-House tournaments.
Shiplake College is known for punching well above its weight in sport and Hockey is going from strength to strength due to the experienced coaching team. The coaching focus is on developing individual skills and looking at team tactics & game play.
