Launched in September 2017, the new 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 the equivalent of training every other week in addition to Indoor Squads and training aimed at the National Super 6 Competitions. Our First Team players are also taking an active involvement in the new Junior Academy, assisting in specific coaching sessions. Any player who joins the Academy will also be able to access Senior Hockey (Mondays/Wednesday/Saturdays) at 50% of normal subs.
In addition to regular training, there are friendly fixtures and tournaments, and from next year the Academy aims to run Elite Camps and ultimately to repeat the successful European Tour which took place last Season. U8-U14’s train from 12.30-2pm on Sundays at LGS, and training sessions for U16/U18 run from 2-3.30pm. Our cafe offers a variety of refreshments (along with Sunday papers for parents!). There is also a small kit shop, along with an ordering service.
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 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.
