High ability, High expectations

This is a high level hockey camp. To apply you will have played county or regional hockey or have been nominated by your coach as being capable of training and playing at this level. We will be bringing together dedicated and talented players and we will expect the work rate and ability to be high.

Quality Coaching

The courses will be led by ex GB international John Shaw. Assisting John will be a team of high quality coaches. The player to coach ratio will be kept low (1:12) to ensure that all players benefit from individual attention. All coaches are fully insured, HA qualified and CRB checked.

Learning and improvement

The camp will be focused on improving your hockey skills and your game play. We guarantee that you will have learnt new skills and be a better player at by the end of the week!

There’s more to playing hockey than working with a stick and ball!

As well as working with stick and ball we will also be looking at other aspects required to be a great hockey player.

Looking after you

A physiotherapist and first aider will be on site during the course. Staff will be on site at night, in tents along side you. And there is no point in working you hard if we do not feed you properly. Our kitchens will be providing a range of nutritionally balanced meals to keep you in top form during the week. And that doesn’t mean cabbage! It means meals high in carbohydrates with some protein and plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. (However, there will also be a snack shop in case you are still hungry!)


Tents will be provided within a fenced area alongside the pitches and the club house. Access to the club house will be available at all times. Night coaches will be sleeping in tents alongside the players. You just need to bring a sleeping bag and mat.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy!

A series of fun, but competitive events will be built into the schedule including the Connect 4 Challenge, the Pool Knockout, Softball and Quick Cricket. There will be down time between training sessions and in the evening and a special activity day on Wednesday.


There are 48 places available. 42 Field players and 6 goalkeepers.

Welcome BBQ

Welcome BBQ for players and parents. We know many of you will have travelled a long way and so we open the camp with a welcome BBQ where parents and players will be able to relax after their journey, see the facilities and chat to coaches. We will also use this time to ensure that all the administration, form filling etc is completed.
