Launched in September 2017, the now established Junior Academy is offering regular training sessions for Age Group Teams ranging from U8 to U18. U8’s – U14’s are offered training every Sunday, and U16-U18 Teams receive training by arrangement. Our First Team players are also taking an active involvement in the new Junior Academy, assisting in specific coaching sessions.
Our aim is to make Leicester Junior Academy the most exciting, successful and fun place for Junior and Age Group hockey in the area. Every boy and girl who wants to play hockey will be given the opportunity to do so at Leicester. With our wide variety of squads and training, there's something accessible to everyone, from total beginners to players with International Caps and National League players.
Highly skilled coaches from throughout the club will complement some of our brightest new coaching talent and ensure that all age groups and competition teams are able to tap into years of experience and hockey knowledge. Our cafe offers a variety of refreshments and we have free wifi in the pavilion for those who need it!
Players under 13 who are not yet eligible for Saturday league matches, have a regular weekly programme of training and competition which is published and sent out once confirmed to the club.
Players over 13 automatically have academy membership as part of their package.
