Take your hockey skills to the next level in the July Hale Holiday Hockey Academy!

We are focused on providing the best coaching possible to our participants. The coaching at this academy will be led by Liam Flynn, the record breaking Hale and Thundersticks striker. He will be supported by current and former Kookaburras and Hockeyroos including Mariah Williams, Hattie Shand and Corey Weyer. Further support will be offered by current premier league players. The coaching curriculum was developed by hockey coaching legend Des King.

Our aim is to provide a positive environment focused on improvement, performance and enjoyment.  Players will come out of this course with the tools equipped to make them better hockey players.

If the coaches need to remove the player from the session they will phone for the player to be picked up.
