Founded by England Hockey Performance Centre coach David Grammer, the Hockey Coaching Academy is an inspiring environment for children to develop their sporting ability in a safe, fun but challenging environment. Our qualified hockey coaches specialise in working with children to develop their individual skills, fitness, technical and tactical awareness, match play and teamwork.
The Hockey Coaching Academy runs Hockey Camps in the school holidays, which are aimed at all levels of children aged 8 – 18. There are Beginner Camps available for those who have never played, Intermediate Camps for players who have played for their County and Advanced Camps for those training at the Regional Performance Centres and beyond. There are usually specific sessions designed for goal-keepers. Please note that we do not have a facility to provide kit for goal keepers as due to the very specific individual requirements of goal keeping kit it is expected that goal keepers will have their own kit, or will have access to club or school kit that they are comfortable in using.
Private 1-2-1 sessions are usually available at each Camp. Please book these at the time of booking onto our camps.
As well as structured group coaching we make sure each child receives the individual guidance and tuition they need to progress. Our guest coaches include experienced national league and international coaches and players.
Alongside player coaching we run hockey coaching courses to help develop teachers and club coaches of all levels.
