Since its humble beginnings in 2004, Hockey at Woodlands International College has developed into the most popular – and one of the most successful – sports in the College. We have two boys and two girls teams, each of which are competing at the highest level in their respective leagues.

The phenomenal growth in the sport was sparked by the beauty of the game and the dynamic, friendly camaraderie of the talented players. Hockey offers the opportunity for growth as both an individual player and also as a team player. In addition to Field Hockey, all of our teams are also playing Indoor Hockey and also excel at this fast-paced, exciting form of the game.
