Over the next few weeks there maybe the odd tweak between groups and how we organise the sessions within the pitch slots. So do give things a few weeks to settle down and we anticipate by the end of September things will have settled down. Coaches will be looking at players on a fairly continuous basis linked and coaches may move players between groups. This is the coaches decision not the players !
Academy player (under 16) transition to senior training is at the invitation of coaches.
Academy coaches will work with senior coaches and academy players (and parents) to manage any transition to senior hockey. We ask parents to be aware that the transition process is not purely age related but linked to a range of factors.
GK training (one week in three for each group - Performance, club and academy): 7.00pm - 8.00pm (blue pitch) - 1 in 3 schedule to be confirmed
Academy Development sessions (different groups - by invitation) 7.00pm - 8.00pm (blue pitch)

2nd/3rd Team Squad Training - men and women: 8.15pm - 9.45pm / 10.00pm (green pitch) with Jamie, Mark and Nigel.
As squads settle down training groups may change as players either settle in groups or continue to have the opportunity to move up and down groups.
