Hockey Academy

Hockey Academy is a fun but challenging camp aimed at children 5-17 years old. An international line up of coaches divide the campers into groups based on age and ability and then train them accordingly. 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.

The Fitguy High Performance

Aimed at S1-S6 these camps are for athletes playing at or aspiring to District level and above. Training athletes to be faster, stronger and less injury prone, as well as helping them with Strength & Conditioning, cardio vascular fitness, agility, recovery, flexibility, mobility and advising on nutrition. The camps deliver high level technical skills with low coach to player ratios as well as 1-2-1s with international level playing coaches.

GK20 Goalkeeping

Aimed at 7-17 year olds and run by East District Goalkeeping Coach Heather Elder, goalkeepers of all ages and abilities will benefit from top class coaching that they very rarely get at schools or clubs. Heather's experience of different styles of coaching, which includes time in the Netherlands, gives her a great set of skills to teach along with her International Goalkeeping coaches. Improvement is guaranteed.

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. The Fitguy High Performance Camps or GK20 Goalkeeping Camp are £250 for the full week or £55 per day. 

Hockey sticks and Goalkeeping kit are not supplied. Please bring your own. Please note that due to the high cost of Pitch Hire, cancellations at 10 days or less will not be refunded.
