Our team of experienced coaches including ex-international players are involved in all aspects of the camp and create a training environment that motivates and inspires players. Working on all aspects of the game in morning and afternoon coaching sessions, players will also benefit from two hours a week of workshops on topics such as match tactics and nutrition, delivered by coaches off the pitch. Where the opportunity arises players may also have the chance to play matches against local English teams and meet young British players.
Our professional and dedicated English language teachers use a customised curriculum based on the CLIL approach used in top schools worldwide in 12.5 hours of lessons each week. Practising communication, reading and writing skills, students will put their learning into context, creating press releases, writing articles, conducting player interviews and researching sports-related media. Players will also benefit from two hours a week of workshops delivered with both English teachers and hockey coaches on topics such as match tactics and nutrition. An entry test groups students by age and ability at the start of the week. With an average of 12 students per class, students get excellent individual feedback including a written report to take home.
Players improve their hockey and English skills as well as confidence, self-discipline and maturity. Coaches equip players with knowledge and insight to continue their progress at home. Teachers encourage players to speak confidently in English and practise with new friends. Every player meets with their English teacher and their coach separately at the end of the camp for an individual assessment and feedback session. Everyone leaves with a coaching report, English report and English course completion certificate.
