DEVELOPMENT CENTRES

Hockey Wales Development Centres are a fantastic way to access additional hockey outside of your regular school/club programme. Delivered by highly qualified Hockey Wales coaches, Development Centres provide a games based, player-centred environment accessible for everyone. Below you can see all of the locations for our 2019 Development Centres. To register, just follow the link below for your desired location. Additionally, if you have further questions please contact tom.little@hockeywales.org.uk

New to the Sport? Our Development Centre coaches have something for everyone. 20% of our 2018 Colwyn Bay Development Centre weren’t affiliated to clubs!

    Just looking to practice a specific skill? No problem, speak to one of the coaches at the start of the session and we can cater for this.

Been referred back to club from 360 and want to work on a particular area? Most of our coaches are either currently working within the 360 pathway or have done previously, so are in a great position to provide advice for yout o get to that next level.

Can’t make it every week? That’s fine. The idea behind the Development Centres is that they’re there to suit you, but we can’t deny that better attendance will probably lead to better results!

My son enjoyed the sessions at Colwyn Bay. He gained so much confidence and loved joining in with children outside of his own club. The sessions were a fantastic experience which he thrived on. We can’t thank you all enough for arranging the development centre and we know he will look forward to any in the future.

My daughter has really enjoyed these sessions . I think that she has benefited a lot more by coming as it is more challenging and also she gets to train alongside other children. I would definitely like to see more of the hockey being played and I know that she loved playing it every week. I hope that you will be carrying on in the new year.

My son has attended most of these sessions and has really enjoyed them. He tells me that they are extremely well organised and the coaches are really friendly…. I think it is important if Welsh hockey is to compete with other regions in the UK that we give youngsters in North Wales access to quality hockey training. This is always going to be difficult in more rural areas like North Wales but your stats prove that you are attracting children from a wide catchment.
