Our Star Coaches and Players
For 2018, we have a stunning line up of former and current GB players, who will be coaching on our hockey academies, inspiring the children and offering hands-on coaching advice. Previous stars include Tom Carson, Becky Middleton, Crista Cullen, Shona McCallin and Zoe Shipperely.
Our Hockey Academies will provide a unique opportunity to be coached by some of the country’s leading players and coaches. We’ve narrowed the age range for 2018 and worked with senior coach and England players to develop our programme, making it the best we have ever offered.
We've utilised the most up-to-date coaching techniques to produce a course that teaches players the skills and strategies they need to perform as a confident and competent player. The programme mixes skill drills with small side challenges and extensive game play to allow young players to develop, practice and apply new techniques.
- Improving confident stick work
- Powerful hitting on the run
- Backhand skills in attack and defence
- Distributing the ball with vision
- Jab and block tackles
- Developing three dimensional skills
- Modern penalty corner strategies

Our coaching team are happy to help athletes if there is a specific area or skill that they you would like to gain more knowledge on. Please speak to the Lead Coach when signing in on the first day of the Academy.
