Hockey

Coleraine Grammar School Hockey Club is blessed with very enthusiastic and knowledgeable coaches, who coach one or two of the seven teams which the school now fields.Participation numbers are extremely positive and there is a strong hockey ethos embedded in the school. Links with local Clubs continue to be fostered with many of the girls playing two games on a Saturday with either Coleraine Ladies or Ballymoney Ladies Hockey Club. The recent acquisition of an astro pitch at the local Rugby Club and a resurgence of Junior Hockey at the local Club level will guarantee the future of Hockey in the Coleraine area for years to come.

The hockey club has produced a number of quality hockey players over the years that have played at International schools level including Nicky Henry, Jan,
Kate and Amy Magowan and Sammy Jo Greer. Lauren Barr has also represented the full Irish side in 2006 after an outstanding hockey career at the school.

More recently Amy Symington represented Ulster and Sarah Kirgan was selected for Ireland.
