Camp Location

Kilkenny: August 17th – 21st – Loreto Secondary School, Kilkenny

What you’ll learn

The daily program for the junior age group will emphasise the development of basic and fundamental hockey skills. These include hand-eye coordination, stick and ball control, and passing. We will achieve this through the use of small games where all participants are active with a hockey ball. Participants will be divided into small groups where the ratio of players to coach will be approximately 12:1.

Coaches

We have an outstanding group of coaches, each with their own unique set of skills, who will share with the players the very latest in modern techniques and tactics throughout the camp. Our coaches are all qualified to a minimum IHA Level 1, they are also experienced players have played or are playing Division One, EYHL or International standard hockey. 

Goalkeepers (Limited to 3 Goalkeepers per camp)

Our goalkeepers will be catered for with their own Goalkeeping coach. Here we will cover many of the basic areas of goalkeeping, kicking, aerial saves (stick and glove), diving, sliding, penalty(short) corners, logging, and 1 v 1 Shoot Outs.

Goalkeepers must have access to your own equipment. Unfortunately, we cannot supply goalkeeping equipment during the camp. If borrowing your school equipment, ensure that you have permission before doing so.

The price to attend the full week is €105 per person, this includes all associated fees and charges. We also provide family discounts.
