Preseason sign up for September is once again open through the following link! General preseason begins in St Andrews on the 1st of September. For those who wish to attend preseason but will not yet have any accommodation in St Andrews, no need to worry, if you just complete the preseason form and indicate you will need somewhere to stay. We will be trying our best to find everyone a place to stay, placing freshers with older members of the club with spare rooms.
The general preseason programme is open for all levels of ability, with teams being split accordingly. As well as sessions twice a day, the week includes a beginner umpiring course and a coaching course as well for those who wish to become more involved in the club. Outside of hockey, we are hoping to have another successful barbecue and social. Preseason allows for incoming and returning students to get back into hockey and begin to form the teams for the upcoming BUCS and Saturday seasons.
Preseason is a great way for incoming first years to integrate into the club, men’s 1stXI player Alasdair McCulloch encourages all who can to attend preseason, saying:
“I really enjoyed preseason as it gave me a chance to get to know the hockey team before the start of fresher’s week. It was really nice to get back into hockey before term started and I felt a lot more comfortable at the start of freshers having already met some friends.”
All in all, preseason is a great week for new and old students alike. For any further questions you may have please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected] and we look forward to seeing many of you in September!
