Boys' Hockey is played at Glenalmond during the Lent Term. All boys in the Third Form are required to participate in two afternoons of hockey with those selected for the Junior Colts receiving an additional coaching session.
Block fixtures involving eight College teams are played against Fettes, Loretto and Strathallan with many extra fixtures being organised, particularly for the senior XI's. The 1st XI play in both the Scottish Clubs and Schools' Cup Competitions and travel to the Festival at King Edward's School, Bath where they play many of the top schools in the UK.
A significant number of boys attend trials for the Midlands region at U16 and U18 level and at the opposite end of the spectrum the inter-house competition provides opportunities for players of all abilities.
