CHOOSE THE COMPONENTS OF YOUR TOUR
With access to some of the best combined sports and residential facilities in the UK, you can choose the type of accommodation that works best for you. Our school venues are available in July and August, and hotel venues are available the rest of the year.
We can offer professional coaching with coaches hand-selected by our coaching director and Team GB hockey player Matt Daly. With field hockey a compulsory school sport in England, all our school venues offer great hockey pitches and sports facilities, or choose to take it to the next level at Bisham Abbey, elite National Sports Centre and the home of the England and GB Field Hockey team.
Alternatively, you can choose a self-train programme where we supply you with the equipment and facilities you need to run your own training programme for your group. All you need to do is bring your coaches with you!
MATCHES VS ENGLISH TEAMS
If you would like some English competition during your tour, we can arrange matches with local clubs. We have a large network of contacts across the country and can organise matches for boys and girls across all junior age groups from 10 – 17.
Working closely with you to ensure we find the right level of opposition for your group, we will arrange home and away matches during your stay. Not only is the competition a great motivator, but your players will have an opportunity to meet like-minded young English players. We try to schedule plenty of social time alongside these matches so that players get the chance to get to know their opponents and find out a little more about English youth hockey from their counterparts.
We have links with some top Sports Science Universities and can offer workshops or seminars on nutrition and hydration, strength and conditioning and recovery. Sports Science seminars offer a break from on-field training while still providing valuable insights to assist with all-round athlete development and progress on the pitch.
WELFARE AND SUPERVISION
Our staff have years of experience running kids camps and tours. You can choose to have a fully-supervised tour with a welfare team looking after the players, leaving you with more free time. Alternatively, just have an on-site tour manager ensuring all the logistics run smoothly throughout your stay.
With our fully-supervised programme our welfare team will organise and lead a programme of evening activities to keep players entertained even in their free time. From football-tennis to quiz nights we can organise activities each night to keep energy levels up and the team experience going strong.
CITY AND SPORTS EXCURSIONS
With many years’ experience organising all kinds of trips to a huge range of attractions across England, we will use our extensive knowledge to help you to choose the most relevant, interesting and fun excursions for your group. You can focus on sporting attractions or visiting some of the sights in England’s most famous cities.
