Hockey Schools and Hockey Clubs

Which schools or private clubs are reputed for hockey training and recommended for one to enrol in?

For Primary School – Saint Andrew, Punggol Pri, Xishan Pri, CHIJ St Nicholas, Townsville Pri, Hildas Pri

For Seconday School – CHIJ St Nicholas, CHI St Theresa Convent, Teck Whye Sec, Crescent Sec, Jurong West, Seng Kang Sec, Victoria Sec, St Hildas, St Andrew

For Junior Colleges – Victoria JC, ACJC

For Polytechnics – Temasek Polytechnic, Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Nanyang Polytechnic

For Clubs – Police Sports Association, Singapore Recreation Club, Singapore Cricket Club, Jansenites Hockey Club, C&C, Theresian Hockey Club, Crescent Hockey Club.

Must one be able to join a private club only after joining a school team? What is the usual process from enrolment to eventually being able to play in tournaments? How long is this process and how many months or years of training must one go through in order to participate in competitions?

Usually the coaches from their respective school will get all of their players to play in the club where they are in. The coaches will get their players to play in the youth leagues and gradually push them to play in the higher leagues in Singapore. For age group tournament such as the under 21, there will be a lot of school teams or club teams sending all the young players to expose themselves.

As for how long, it depends on the coaches, once they feel that the players are up to the standard, they will let them participate, usually after about  6 months of training.

  1. Hi,I am beginner hockey player,can you recommend me some clubs to train in and also help me include their websites and contact number.
    Thank YOU

  2. Hi! I am 20 and very interested in hockey but I was wondering do any of the private clubs taken in beginners above 20 and train them from start?
    Thank you

    • Hello Kavitha,
      It will be a challenge for any private club to take you in as a beginner. Most private clubs in Singapore do not conduct trainings for beginners without hockey experience. They usually take in players from the schools; of whom have already been trained. You may wish to try with the Singapore Police Force, as they are the only team in Singapore that is open to train beginners from the start. They have trainings between 4 to 6 pm every Wednesday of the week.

        • Hi Kavitha,

          I am not sure if you are the same Kavitha that I’d replied to earlier, however this is the contact if you wish to find out more from the Police Sports Association:

          Hopes this helps. Cheers.

  3. Hi,could explain how the private clubs work, like do they have an age requirement to join ? or do they conduct trials and only taken in players with prior experience in hockey? Thank you

    • Hi Jessica,
      Most of the private clubs in Singapore recruit their players directly from schools that already have hockey teams and provide hockey trainings. For enthusiasts without prior hockey experience, you may approach the Singapore Police Force. They are constantly looking for potential players to train.

  4. Hi,
    We´ll be moving from Germany to Singapore in a couple of months. Our two girls (13 and 11 years old) are passionate and talented hockey players. Both play hockey since a couple of years, with 4-5 hours of training a week and matches on weekends. We´d like to make sure they get similar support and practice in Singapore. Most probably they will go to German School, which as far as we know, does not have a hockey team. What would be your recommendation to provide the girls with adequate training and match practice in Singapore?
    Thanks and regards,
    Marcus

    • Hello Marcus,

      The clubs in Singapore usually take in players who have already been trained for some time in schools. Since the German School has no in-school hockey team and trainings, you may wish to try the Singapore Recreation Club (Tel:+65 63389367). Kids who are trained and competent in their areas of sports may also try to apply for their Sporting Memberships to play for the club. The current age requirement for this is however at 14 years & above, nevertheless you may still want to try since your 2 girls have been well trained back home.

      You may try enquiring through Mr James Lee at +65 6595 0526 or email him at james.sports@src.org.sg.

      There may be an upcoming program known as Funky Hockey, provided by the Singapore Hockey Federation to provide skills trainings to younger kids whose schools do not provide hockey trainings. This is however in the progress of planning, and have not been confirmed yet. Do log in for updates.

  5. Hello!

    Is the singapore police force that you mentioned earlier the same as the Singapore police association/academy? If that’s the case, you said that they’d accept players who aren’t that proficient, but they only play in the premier leagues? Won’t the standards be quite high then?

    Another thing is that I’ve got experience playing hockey in jc, but I’m not that great at it. Which club will you recommend?

    Thank you!!

    • Hello YB,

      Singapore Police Force is also the Police Sports Association. Yes, they take in beginners and train them from scratch. However these beginners are to be trained for an average of at least one year, before they can be ready for tournaments.

      Hockey players in JCs or any other schools will usually be led into certain clubs through their coachs’ recommendation. This ensures continuity in hockey and enabling to another level of hockey training and exposure. If you had somehow discontinue your hockey training since then, you may have to try clubs like Barkerites Hockey Club (614 Dunearn Road Singapore 289619, Tel: 6466 9854), as I know they do take in players who have played before.

      Good luck!

    • Hi Kavitha,

      The Police Sports Association does not have a designated website, unfortunately. However you can contact the following if you need to find out more:

      - Park View Primary

      - Huamin Primary

      - Fernvale Primary

      - Chongfu Primary

      - Casuarina Primary

      Eventually after training, the girls will be sent to represent different clubs by their school hockey coaches.
      Hope this information helps. Good luck.

      Cheers

  7. Hi.. i used to play competitively. However, ceased after joining the workforce. Looking for a team that play recreationally… any idea if there is any?

    Cheers and regards..

    • Hi Lya,

      If you have somehow ceased playing hockey for a period, most clubs would consider you as beginners once again, though you have got experience. You may clubs like Barkerites Hockey Club (614 Dunearn Road Singapore 289619, Tel: 6466 9854), as I know they do take in players who have played before, or the Police Sports Association as they take in those who are keen to play from scratch. If you have got previous hockey experience, they may place you in senior teams. Hope this helps.
      Good luck!
      Cheers

  8. Hi. I’m a 17 year old student from Brunei who is moving to Singapore to further my studies. I’m looking for a club to train with. I’m in the Brunei Junior Hockey squad and the Brunei Sports Council squad as well. We train 4 times a week. From 4pm till 6pm and resuming from 7pm till 930pm every session. Could you please recommend me a club?

    • Hi Jonathan,
      The private clubs in Singapore usually take in potential players trained for sometime in schools. For you to play for a club eventually, you will still need a referral from a school in which you will have to be receiving hockey training from. Which school will you be studying in Singapore? Have you enquired if your school has hockey as an extra-curriculum? If so, this will be a launch pad for you to be trained in clubs subsequently. Otherwise, try approaching clubs like Barkerites Hockey Club (614 Dunearn Road Singapore 289619, Tel: 6466 9854), as I know they do take in players who have played before. Hope this helps. Good luck! Cheers.

  9. Hi. I’m 13 and I have never experienced playing Hockey, but I am interested in it. Is there any Hockey clubs for girls in Singapore that I can enter?
