Hockey players and coaches in Pretoria can look forward to a unique opportunity to improve their skill-set and knowledge by working closely with former and current South African hockey coaches and players at the Investec Hockey Academy.

Aimed at raising the calibre of school girl hockey, the national initiative will be bringing an iconic line-up of SA’s top hockey talent to St Mary’s Diocesan School for Girls on Saturday, 3 and Sunday, 4 December.

Among the team of well-known hockey coaches are SA Women’s Hockey players Shelley Russell, Lisa Deetlefs and Sulette Damons; as well as one of leading women’s coaches in world hockey, Lindsey Wright.

The courses for players offered at the Investec Hockey Academy are the Fundamental Players’ Course (ages 8 to 11), an Intermediate Players’ Course (ages 12 to 15) and an Advanced Players’ Course (ages 16 to 18). The coaching courses will run alongside the players’ courses, allowing coaches the opportunity to work with the national coaches in the age group of their school teams.

The Investec Hockey Academy’s next set of courses will commence on 3 and 4 December at St Mary’s Diocesan School for Girls in Pretoria in Pretoria.
