The Boots Junior Academy is an extremely important part of the club and is at the forefront of the club's development plans for the future.
The Junior Academy has a comprehensive coaching programme that includes fitness general and advanced hockey skills coaching. The club annually holds England Hockey "Stix Skills" coaching and testing and all coaching is provided in a safe and fun atmosphere by friendly, experienced and qualified coaching staff.
The Junior Academy is open to all standards; however, the most talented members will be identified and nurtured to ensure that they have the best possible start to their hockey career.
