Junior Hockey Conference


On Wednesday 27 September five hockey players were selected to attend the annual Junior Hockey Conference at Repton School. This was a great opportunity, made even more fabulous by the fact that two of the guest coaches were Helen and Kate Richardson-Walsh (GB Gold medallists from the Rio Olympics).

The morning session was dedicated to skill development; all of the players were put through their paces and they worked on a number of 3D skills. After lunch their attention turned to building tactical awareness; developing their understanding of how to support the player with the ball and create overload situations. Being exposed to different coaches, methods and drills was an interesting experience for our players. They fully embraced the challenge.

At the end of the day all of the players collected autographs from Kate and Helen, and even had the opportunity to see an Olympic Gold Medal - what an inspirational experience.
