MSSP Year 5/6 Quicksticks Hockey Finals 2017-18

The Merton School Sport Partnership held its annual Year 5/6 Quicksticks Hockey Borough Competition on Friday 17th November 2017 at King’s College Sports Ground. Quicksticks is a modified version of hockey suitable for primary aged children. Games consist of four players on pitch with no goalkeepers; this makes it easier for primary schools to play, as accessing a goal keeping kit is a tricky and costly affair. Quicksticks hockey also requires the players to rotate each game, giving them the chance to act as a coach, scorer and to give all players an equal chance to take part.
