Launched in September 2017, the new Junior Academy is offering regular training sessions for Age Group Teams ranging from U8 to U18. U8’s – U12’s are offered training every Sunday, and U14-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.
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. 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.
Players over 13 and under 18 may choose to solely play within the Academy or play in our Senior Hockey Teams (Mondays/Wednesday/Saturdays) and have a combined membership (at 50% of normal subs).
