Performance

Our performance team is supported by many full-time and part-time coaches as well as strength and conditioning coaches, lifestyle support coaches and we have scholarships and funding options available for our top players.

The performance squad (first team) currently competes in the Scottish National League 1 (the top league in Scotland),  BUCS Hockey Premier North 1B league and the Scottish Hockey Hockey National Division 2 for indoor hockey. Competing in these leagues allows us to play against some of the best teams in the country and the UK as a whole.

The men’s head coach is former GB international and olympian Graham Moodie and he is supported by  Men’s Assistant Coach Martin Beckford.
