Hockey forms part of the core sports delivered throughout East Lothian and targets the following areas: Primary School Sport, Secondary School Sport, Community Clubs, Coach and Teacher Education, Development and Performance Squads. The governing body of hockey, Scottish Hockey, supports this programme and works closely with the Development Officer.
There are a number of qualifications you can obtain if you would like to coach hockey. For volunteers, senior pupils, parents and teachers the Hockey Leaders course offers a basic introduction to the basic skills in hockey. There is an Introduction to Hockey course aimed at those interested in hockey coaching with little or no coaching experience.
Once senior and youth clubs and schools become affiliated members of Scottish Hockey they can take part in national, regional and youth competitions and benefit from newsletters and hockey resources.

Cost should never stop your child participating in sport and physical activity. If you are worried or concerned about your ability to cover the cost related to any activity your child would like to take part in, please contact the Active Schools Co-ordinator listed above to discuss in complete confidence. Any assistance is provided confidentially so that it is not obvious to other individuals that your child is receiving this support.
The East Lothian Kit Stop is an East Lothian based sports recycling programme run by Active Schools.
This programme collects new/no longer used sports equipment and clothing and redistributes it back into our local communities.
With the aim to help support more children and young people in getting more active whilst reducing waste and encouraging a more sustainable East Lothian.
