Talented young coaches

All our coaches are international level players and enjoy working with children to give them the benefit of all the high level coaching they have received, in some cases at hockey academy.

Personal development

With a ratio of 1 coach to 10 players, the children benefit from a high level of 1-2-1 coaching. This guarantees that their personal skill level will be significantly improved by the end of the week.

Goalkeeping clinic

With a minimum of 2 international goalkeeping coaches at each camp, goalkeepers of all ages and abilities benefit from top class coaching that they very rarely get at schools or clubs.

What we do

As President of East District Youth Hockey I am well aware of the great work done by our Schools and Clubs. However, due to high numbers and shortage of coaches there is a limit to what they can achieve. At Hockey Academy, we take children from the age of five and with our low player to coach ratio means they can work on all aspects of the game under expert supervision. Mornings at Hockey Academy are spent on skills training and children are divided into groups based on age and ability. Skills stations are set up around the pitch where the coaches work with each group making sure the lesson is suitable for the abilities involved.

A different theme is applied each day from defending to attacking and we guarantee that players will show significant improvement over five days. Afternoons see the very popular mini tournament played where the coaches divide the teams into as equal lineups as possible. The coaches then umpire the matches but continue to coach and are careful to look out for the use of the skills taught in the morning. Hockey Academy are proud to have seen a number of players go on to play for East District, Scotland and even Great Britain and will continue to provide top class coaching to talented children.

Our camps offer great value for children and parents at only £180 for a full week or £40 per day.

Please note that due to the high cost of Pitch Hire, cancellations at 10 days or less will not be refunded.
