What we do at training
We start with a physical warmup of stretching and movement. We then do some practice of our core hockey skills – moving the ball on the stick, dribbling and passing.
After that we usually split into our teams and practice drills that develop our skills and playing style and that meet the needs of our particular team.
We usually finish with small-sided matches so that everyone gets lots of touches of the ball.
Our primary goal for our young players is for them to have fun and to enjoy themselves in a safe environment. It’s a little selfish but if they’re happy, they come back! There’s no pressure and we’re good at integrating new players and helping them to progress.
At training our Juniors are organised into small groups of similar ages and skills. Our sessions help our young players to quickly develop their hockey skills while also developing fitness, teamwork, communication skills and confidence. With 60+ youngsters, in a 50/50 mix of boys and girls, with a wide range of different ages and abilities, your child won’t be the odd-one-out.
