Overview

Friends’ School has a vibrant Girls Hockey club. In recent years, such is the enthusiasm in all year groups, that Friends’ has fielded 5 senior teams and at least 2 teams in each of the age groups U14, U13 and U12. Practices take place every afternoon on the school astro pitches. Matches are arranged both midweek and every Saturday, when from late August to the end of March, often 9 teams compete against the top schools in Ulster. On Saturday mornings Year 8 girls are welcome to take part in a full morning of sport with both netball and hockey on offer. Teams are all entered in all the Ulster Hockey competitions available to grammar schools. Tours to Dublin, Holland and other top European countries are offered on a regular basis.
