The College Academy is a recently introduced scheme run by CUHC, which offers weekly training sessions to help develop college players skills and gameplay. The sessions are open to all interested college players – whether you are serious about improving or just want a fun knock around. The sessions are led by student coaches who will try to make the sessions suited to everyone’s abilities.
Men who attend these sessions are also considered (alongside Squanderers squad members) for the Blunderer’s squad which plays against OUHC Mens’ 4th XI (‘The Sporadics’) on 2s/3s/4s Varsity. Please note, in line with CUHC selection policy for all other teams, consideration takes into account both ability and commitment; if you only attend one session no matter how good you are you will not be selected.
As much as we would love to be able to offer the same for a Women’s squad, Oxf*rd don’t currently have a Women’s 4th team so this isn’t possible, and have not been able to raise a “one-off” team like CUHC has been able to. Please still come along to sessions though!
All sessions are held at the Wilberforce Road hockey pitch. Directions can be found here.
If you are interested in attending, please email our President, Louis Totton () or join the CUHC College academy Facebook Group.
