Talented teenage hockey players are being given plenty of opportunity to hone their game at the University of Bath’s world-class training facilities in the coming months.

Team Bath Tribe are staging a two-day hockey camp during the Easter holidays for players aged 13-16, including access to video analysis, the hydro-pool and strength and conditioning facilities at the Sports Training Village.

It will run from 10am-4pm on Tuesday, April 7 and Wednesday, April 8, priced £45. Call 01225 386915 to book a place or for more information.

Team Bath are also currently recruiting for their Junior Hockey High Performance Squads, aimed at talented young players who want to maximise their potential and increase the prospects of progressing to representative hockey.

The programme, open to boys and girls at U16 and U18 level, is run by University of Bath head coach Jody Paul, pictured, who performs the same role with England Boys U18s and is also an EHB centralised contracted coach.

Sessions will take place weekly from May 5 to July 2 on the water-based Sitec pitch at the Sports Training Village, with boys meeting from 6.30-8pm on Tuesdays and girls from 6.30-8pm on Thursdays.

The cost is £75 and players should be in, or willing to be in, the England Hockey Standard Pathway structure at Junior Academy Level or higher.
