    IAPS Hockey (Girls)
    Many of England’s International Hockey squad all started their hockey careers playing at independent schools.


"The IAPS hockey competitions are always a favourite part of the term for our girls teams in the prep school. This is a fantastic occasion which provides a fun yet competitive experience for prep school pupils. One of the best aspects of being able to play in both the regional and national rounds is that you find yourself playing teams off of your normal fixture card, going into games against the unknown is something that prep school pupils rarely have to encounter. The hosting at the national finals was brilliant and the whole event ran smoothly. Now we have 10 girls who can call themselves IAPS National Champions and this memory will be embedded in their memory for the rest of their lives, with hopefully a chance to repeat this next year. Thank you to IAPS for hosting yet again another fantastic year of competitions and we look forward to hosting and entering more next year." - Scott Simkins, Hurstpierpoint College.
