Academy Hockey

Expert coaching on water-based astro pitches.

Academy Hockey is open to students of all abilities and takes place on one of Millfield's fantastic water-based astroturfs.

A variety of drills will be used to teach core hockey skills including dribbling, shooting, tackling and tactical awareness. The more experienced players will develop previously acquired skills and work on more technical moves including hitting and backhand/reverse stick.

Defensive and attacking match-play scenarios are practised in order to help students become more independent decision-makers during games, thinking ahead to their next move, as well as improving teamwork.

In 2016 and 2017 some students had the opportunity to play a match against a team from a local club during one of our evening activities, Hockey Varsity. Students and staff watched the match with half time entertainment provided by Academy Dance and Academy Rock.

It is recommended that students bring a gum shield and shin pads, however hockey sticks can be provided.
