Hockey Accelerators – Top Up
Hockey Accelerators: Top Up is CHA’s new skill development camp, set to run during the July school holidays in 2016.
Top Up is a great way to use the holiday period to upskill with the business end of the season approaching. Key skills/ concepts in today’s game with an emphasis on attacking play will be focused on throughout and practised in a variety of situations. With experienced coaches and a high coach to athlete ratio. Participants will receive detailed feedback and guidance on what areas they need to develop to take their game to the next level throughout the camp.
The programme will target three major age groups (in school years): Year 5-6, Year 7-8, Year 9-10
Specialised keeper training is also available throughout the camp. Keeper training will build on skill specific drills and then applied in whole group drills that complement those areas. Regardless of where you’re starting from, well help you up your game through a variety of drills featuring rebound boards, Crazy Catches and ball machines. The goal keeping component will again focus on the three age groups listed above but older athletes may be considered (please contact us).
Hockey Accelerators: Top Up will be delivered at Nunweek Park on Tuesday the 19th and Wednesday the 20th of July. The programme will kick off at 9am and run through to 3pm (both days). Athletes are expected to be at Nunweek park at 8.50am. They will be reasonable for their own gear and will need to bring morning tea and lunch.
Players have the option of signing up for Tuesday, Wednesday or both days.
Cost: One day $60.00 Two days $100.00
