The Grey Vision
Grey remains as one of the leading schools in the country, with a culture and value system that support its fine heritage. Grey is recognised for its competitiveness and excellence in academic, sporting and cultural activities, as well as for its ability to consistently produce leaders.
Head of Hockey
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.
