WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Rebel Hockey Academy is a performance programme that has been set up to provide extra support and high performance training for top performing young players between U13 and U19. Rebel Hockey Academy is based in Southampton and now in Reading and is open to hockey players from all clubs & schools.
The programme has two main aims:
1. To provide a high quality, high intensity but player led training environment where all players can learn, develop, invent and excel. We aim to provide top quality coaching to support players development through game play focused and decision rich practices.
2. Provide a sports science support network and create an environment within which young players can thrive and develop towards their maximum potential both on and off the field. We aim to educate players on the wider aspects of performance sport and support them in becoming an athlete not just a hockey player.
The academy offers strength & conditioning, SAQ, sports psychology, sports nutrition and injury management workshops as well as the on pitch sessions. The support offered is provided by experts in their respective fields. Rebel also offers high performance hockey camps featuring coaching from a team of highly skilled coaches and players with national league experience.
Rebel Hockey aims to help players develop a wide range of skills and to develop their decision making skills within game play focused and player driven practices. Training is provided to support players participation in the single system and to ensure players are sharp when they attend. Training sessions are also a place for players to work on feedback from the single system coaching team with the academy coaches.
We’re delighted to announce that as part of the 2020 programme onwards we will be raising money for Tusk. Tusk are a charity whose work is close to our hearts and we are delighted to be able to use our platform to do what we can.
