The Academy

Our Hockey Academy provides a unique opportunity to be coached by some of the country’s greatest players. 

Coaches will teach players the skills and strategies needed to perform as a confident and competent player. We employ a team of first-class coaches to deliver a programme which mixes skill drills with small side challenges and extensive game-play. Young players will develop their skills, pick up new techniques and have the opportunity to apply them all in a fun and inspiring environment.

The Academy will cover:

  • 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
  • tactics from the International game
  • specialist goal scoring session

Our coaching team are happy to help players develop a specific area or skill within which they wish to improve. Please speak to the Lead Coach when signing in on the first day of the Academy.

Join GB's Liam Ansell This Summer!

Liam first shot to international prominence at the 2018 World Cup when, as a late injury call up, he shone as England claimed a fourth-placed finish, producing two sensational strikes. That came after he had won a bronze medal with England at the Commonwealth Games earlier in the year and featured at the 2017 Hockey World League final.

He then went on to score four times during the 2020/21 FIH Hockey Pro League, twice for England at the 2021 EuroHockey Championships and then four more times for GB on the sport's biggest stage - the Tokyo Olympics.

Liam thrives on the biggest occasions, and has become known for his dazzling play and ability to score the most spectacular of goals. Join Liam this Summer for our inspiring academy!
