Training

It never gets easier, you just get better

Squad Training

Cambridge South runs professionally coached training sessions for men and women of all standards throughout the season from September to March at Long Road Sixth Form College. All training sessions are free to attend, for club members and newcomers, with no booking required.

Ladies' Squads

1st & 2nd XIs - Wednesdays, 7.30pm - 9pm
3rd to 5th XIs - Mondays, 8pm - 9.30pm

Due to continued growth in numbers and the addition of a 5th league team this season, ladies' training is now split across two evenings. The Ladies' 1s and Ladies' 2s squads train on Wednesday nights, while the remaining three teams - including players new or returning to hockey - train on Monday evenings.

Mens Squads

Tuesdays, 7:30pm - 9:30pm

The men's teams train on Tuesdays nights, meeting at 7.15 to warm-up. All teams train from 7.30-9pm, divided into higher and lower teams each on half a pitch. The Men's 1s and Men's 2s continue until 9.30pm on the full pitch.

Goalkeeper Training

As well as being included within the main men's and ladies' training sessions, the club also arranges periodic separate dedicated training for goalkeepers. See the club calendar for the training schedule. Keepers should arrive early and be kitted up and ready for the start of the session.

1st Team Training

The Men's 1s and Ladies' 1s run a second hour of training from 8.30-9.30pm on Thursday evenings. There is a supplemental fee for this session for 1st XI players (£40 for the season / £20 unwaged).

Juniors' Training

For details of Juniors training, including upcoming session dates and times, check out the dedicated Juniors page.

Summer Hockey

Cambridge South also offers informal weekly hockey on Wednesday evenings year-round, including over the summer off-season, from 7:30-8:30pm at Long Road Sixth Form College.

A typical session consists of a couple of small-sided knock-around games, each on a half pitch. The sessions are mixed men's and ladies' hockey and open to everyone. You don't have to be a club member to come along and new players are very welcome.

If you build up a thirst then there is usually a group of us going on for a drink or two afterwards at a nearby pub - a great way to get to know people in the club!

If you'd like to play, either contact any time during the week prior to the session you wish to attend or else just turn up at the pitch and introduce yourself. The cost is £4 or £2 for students and the unwaged. If you're new to the club, your first session is free, as are all the Thursday beginner sessions!
