What are the academies?
10 session hockey programme which includes the new Academy Day where all centres get to train and play against each other.
The academies offer an elite training environment and gives athletes exposure and experience of what is being developed and worked on in international hockey.
This is the 5th year of the academies and we are confident this will be the best year yet!

Who are they for?
Boys and girls aged 13-18 who are playing county and above. Groups at each centre will be split on ability and we look to really push the players to ensure they reach their potential.
We have experience coaching at all levels so we know we have the ability to support top junior athletes develop. We have had great success with many of the #101Family making it to Junior England level and also playing Premier League.

What about the goalkeepers?
We know that the goalkeepers need their TLC too! Goalkeeper coaching is from leading specialists where you will experience both integrated (with players) and individual technical coaching
This year we have partnered with Fortitude Hockey to provide the best possible experience for all goalkeepers that attend.
The goalkeeping sessions are also proudly sponsored by Obo Hockey. You can find out about their amazing equipment by following the link here .
