Since 2010 every child in Markethill PS plays hockey! The P1-3 children receive coaching from the Armagh Hockey Development Officer, Christine Russell, in basic hockey skills. This has proved so popular with the children that we now offer an after-schools infant hockey club which is coached by Mrs Warburton on a Wednesday.
P4-7 enjoy taking part in 'Stick Stars', again coached by Christine!
A hockey development club is held on a Tuesday after school by Mrs McCool for P5-7 children. The girls and boys squads receive extra coaching on a Monday with Christine at Markethill High School.
