Head of Hockey

Jason Bigara

Overview

With a world-class water-based Astroturf, dedicated coaching staff, regular selections for South African age group teams and a growing list of Old Grey internationals, Grey hockey is as strong as it has ever been in its 53-year history. Strong competitive fixtures are played against most of the country’s top schools and Grey is a founder member of the Nomads hockey festival. Several overseas tours have been undertaken since the first one, to the UK, in 1982.

Interestingly enough, in amongst the new-age facilities and coaching techniques, one of the distinguishing features of Grey hockey is the age-old family  onnection. A remarkable number of fathers, sons, cousins and brothers have distinguished themselves as the game has grown into one of the school’s major sports.
