Academy Centre

What happens?

Players take part in six training sessions and four competition days at local Academy Centres. Dates and times are scheduled by the County Hockey Associations who run the Centres. Contact details for your County Administrator can be found here.

How do I get involved?

  • Players are usually nominated to attend an Academy Centre by their Development Centre coaches
  • Players may be nominated by their school if they have previously attended a Development Centre
  • Players can be nominated from the ages of 12-16
  • Players who consistently demonstrate strong skills are invited to Academy Centres

If you are not selected for an Academy Centre do not worry, you should continue to develop your hockey through school, club and Development Centre activity. You may be nominated to attend an Academy Centre later in the season and can be nominated at any age group.

What are the entry and exit points?

Players enter Academy Centres in October. There are transition points during the year where players may be selected for a Performance Centre.
