THA will deliver two weekly sessions for U16 Development in term 1. These training sessions are open to all players aspiring to play representative hockey. The first session will emphasise basic skills, principles of play, decision making and small gameplay. The second session will be called Free Play Friday. This session will have no formal coaching, emphasising enjoyment and creativity. Players will be encouraged to start up small pick-up games or create their own activities to explore what is possible. The programme will provide an excellent build-up to the start of the club, school, and representative hockey.
To be eligible to join this programme, you must be in year 9, 10 or 11 at school.
NB: Tuesday training is for field players only. Goalkeepers can attend the free play Friday sessions and have their own development programme, which you can find under the goalkeeper development tab.
