Exciting new hockey partnership launched by Ipswich School

A new partnership with EVO Hockey has been launched by Ipswich School, designed to bring top class hockey coaching to Suffolk in the school holidays.

The first camp takes place in October half term, on Monday 21 and Tuesday 22 October, at the school’s outstanding hockey facilities in Rushmere. The camp is open to students from across the local area, and includes dedicated training for goalkeepers as well as sessions for outfield players. The camps are suitable for anyone aged from 7 to 17, and of any ability.

Alistair Addison, Head of Hockey at Ipswich School, said: “It is a privilege to be able to offer our students and the wider community the opportunity to access one of the most outstanding hockey programmes in the country. Having seen EVO in action, we believe their quality experience delivered by international players and coaches, training in the top class facility at Rushmere, will give young hockey players a great experience like no other.”

Mr Addison added: “A major aim of ours has always been to offer the highest level of coaching not just in term time but also during holidays, and we believe the partnership with EVO is the perfect solution to this.”

Omar Shibli, co-founder of EVO Hockey, said: “EVO Hockey are delighted to be partnering with Ipswich School, working together to deliver world-class coaching open to all young players in the Suffolk and surrounding regions. We are excited by the sports department’s forward-thinking approach to youth talent development and look forward to bringing some of the world’s top international hockey players and coaches to their top-class facility at ISSC Rushmere.”

Mr Shibli added: “EVO Hockey connects hockey outfielders and goalkeepers with the world’s top international players and coaches from around the globe. Our team includes World Player of the Year winners, Olympians, World Cup winners and many more. With over 125 coaches in our team, representing more than 25 countries, we look forward to delivering an exceptional training experience for players of all abilities in the region.”
