3 Day High Performance Camp
Kirkham Grammar School
Once a year for the past 6 years we've delivered a 3 day high performance camp. This camp is designed to test and enhance the ability of the players ahead of the new hockey season. It has been designed to mirror that of a NAGS camp (otherwise known as an England camp). The coaches take the players through a series of challenging technical sessions before testing their tactical abilities, their leadership qualities and their psychological strengths.
*NAGS = National Age Group Squad: England squad for juniors
This camp has been specifically aimed at players who are experienced and looking to take their game to the next level. Every year we do this, the players who've attended the camp always say it is the best camp they've ever been to and they wish we did it more often.
In 2023 we brought this camp to KGS and we are super excited to be delivering this High Performance Camp again in 2024 specifically just for players at Kirkham Grammar School.
The players are going to get an experience which is designed to push them to their limits, and beyond, but in a very controlled environment with some very skilled coaches.
General camp plan
Our coaching staff have lots of experience in being part of Junior International Hockey Camps so our goal it to recreate this environment for players who wouldn't usually have this opportunity.
On day 1 the players will rotate around and have a training session with each of the coaches. This allows every coach to gain an understanding of who is capable of doing what.
At lunch time, the coaches will then split themselves into two teams, and they will pick the players for their squad based on what they've seen in the morning.
From this point on for the rest of the camp, the players will train in their teams. They will play a full game, properly umpired with subs etc. that afternoon. This game will be filmed.
Overnight the coaches will analyse the video footage.
The following morning the players will watch the clipped footage from the coaches, and then spend an entire day trying to improve themselves.
The re-match will take place in the afternoon of day 3 - this will be the gold medal match.
All players will receive a goodie bag and t-shirt for this camp. There will be at least 1 current/former International hockey player present for this camp.
We will be taking lots of high resolution photographs at this camp and will create an online album for players and parents to view, save and share.
