The Club is excited to announce the availability of a 4 week Development Session for Juniors

The Junior Development Sessions start on Wednesday the 22 of November @ 6.30 pm and 8.00 pm (later times for older age groups)

These sessions are targeted at player in the U12, U14, U16 and U18 age groups.  Expression of interest will be be considered for players outside these groups.

The cost is $60 per person for the full 4 week series.

Hockey Victoria’s Ben Seccull will deliver the sessions, in conjunction with a variety of external guest coaches who have international playing experience as well as State and Development Coaching experience.

These sessions concentrate on

  • Receiving (forehand, backhand and in motion)
  • Distribution (in motion as a particular focus)
  • Elimination & ball retention skills
  • Goal shooting (in particular close range)
  • Tackling
  • Decision making (how to create space, use space, manipulate a defender, manipulate a player carrying the ball and defend the critical areas of the pitch)

There is a limit  of 12 players for each session. The small group will allow intense focus on the areas being covered and individual attention.
