Comprehensive Coaching Approach
Our coaching process follows a simple yet comprehensive approach, involving meticulous planning, high-quality delivery, reflective evaluation, and constructive feedback. We believe in the power of planning, ensuring every session is thoughtfully crafted to achieve the best outcomes. Our coaching team is dedicated to delivering fun and impactful sessions, considering the needs of our clients with precision.
In 2013, our journey began with our founder, Stephen Williams, organising the first hockey camp. Driven by a passion to inspire young players at his club to stretch their limits and enhance their skills, these intense training days quickly gained local recognition for their excellence.
However, there was initial hesitancy among players further afield, who were unsure if these camps were a ploy to recruit for Stephen’s hockey club.
Recognising the need to refine and improve the camps, it became evident that there was a broader need to bridge the gap in resources for hockey coaching outside of London. While camps in the capital had access to numerous international hockey players as coaches, the same was not true elsewhere. This realisation fuelled our belief that we could extend the reach of high-quality coaching beyond the city limits.
After four years of successful camps, we officially transformed into PerfX Hockey in 2017. This rebranding clarified our commitment to Improving Performance and creating excellence. Importantly, it alleviated concerns about recruitment, making it evident that our focus was on developing the abilities of all players, irrespective of club affiliations.
Since 2017 we have worked with over 5000 players and in 2024 we aim to reach over 15 different locations across the UK.
