Otago Hockey Junior Accelerator Program


Otago Hockey Junior Accelerator Program

Otago Hockey is spending more time investing in their future by offering the Junior Accelerator Hockey Program to players in the Year 5&6, Year 7&8 (U13) and Year 9,10&11 (U15) age groups.

This Program is open to any player in the above age groups who would like to improve and up-skill their hockey in preparation for the 2020 hockey season.

Starting date: Tuesday 11th February

The trainings will be overseen by our Pathway Manager - Hymie Gill – with the help of Otago Representative players. The trainings will cover a range of basic and advanced skills, defensive and attacking principles, along with PC skills and general play concepts.

There will be an emphasis on physical fitness and mobility. The trainings will be physically demanding and require a high level of focus and commitment.

We understand that many of our players will still be involved in summer sport and we encourage them to continue their sporting diversity, as it is beneficial to the overall development of the athlete.

The sessions will be:

Tuesday                             U13 Girls & U15 Girls training 4.00pm-5.30pm
Wednesday                        Yr 5&6 Girls & U13 Girls training 4.00pm-5.30pm
