BIG SCHOOLS – Year 5/6 Quicksticks Hockey

5 March from 10:00 am - 12:15 pm


All of our events will follow our new event themes; For All, Targeted & Competitive. These themes have been designed to ensure we provide events to benefit all young people.

FOR ALL– These events are for everyone and are delivered in school. They focus on providing 60 active mins for every child whilst supporting their physical, social and emotional wellbeing.

TARGETED– These events target specific groups of young people who would benefit the most from having positive experiences of sport, physical activity and competition. The activities and outcomes are designed to reflect the young people’s needs and motivations.

COMPETITIVE– These events are for pupils who are ready and prepared for competition and enjoy performing and competing against others. They provide the opportunity for competition in a positive and friendly environment where the focus is on enjoyment and supporting the wider development of young people as much as the outcome of the event itself.

This is a COMPETITIVE event for children in Year 5/6 who are ready for competition.  The aim of this event is to support individual development in sport.

Quicksticks is a mini version of hockey developed by England Hockey to introduce the game to primary school pupils.
