What can I expect at training?

Your first session

Firstly, let us know that you’re coming so that one of our team can meet you and introduce you to our coaches, captains and other players. 

Contact Mark on 07973 963539 or mwjmail@gmail.com.  
 
All new players will have someone to look after them in their first sessions. In our Senior teams it’s a team captain, in Badgers (12+) new players are allocated a buddy and in Juniors it’s our coaches. 
 

What we do at training

Our training sessions always follow the same format and will be very familiar to anyone who’s played team sports before. 

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.

Junior training

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. 

Several times per season parents/guardians and siblings of our Junior players are invited to join us on the pitch for fun training and games. 
  
All sessions are led by coaches who are England Hockey qualified, first-aid trained and DBS checked.
