East London Hockey Club will host an open selection day at the Olympic Park’s Lee Valley Hockey & Tennis Centre on Saturday.
The club fields nine women’s teams, nine men’s teams, two mixed teams, youth and veteran teams and has an indoor and youth section.
They play in the East and Essex Leagues and welcome those new to hockey, or those who are looking for a way back into the sport.
There will be a women’s session from 9.30am until midday and a men’s session from 12.30-3pm, followed by a picnic in the park.
Each session will begin with warm-up and fitness, followed by mini drills and challenges to assess ability and help shape teams.
Captains and coaches will be on hand to give advice and sticks are available to borrow, but those attending do need a mouth guard, shin pads and appropriate footwear.
The day is free for all to attend and all abilities are welcome. See elhockey.co.uk for more information.
