Hockey Accelerators - Quick Start 2018

Hockey Accelerators: Quick Start is Canterbury Hockey's pre season skill development programme for athletes looking to hit the 2018 season with a running start. The programme caters for a wide range of age groups with 3 levels designed to help players get back into touch after the summer break, while they take their skills to the next level. Level 1 invites Year 5-6 athletes to attend while Level 2 caters for Year 7-8 and Level 3 for secondary school students. 


The price per participant is $150.00, this covers six practise sessions with coaching from experienced top level coaches / players, a program training top, use of facilities and a skills resource at the end of the programme.


Level 1: Year 5-6 (school years)

  • Sessions are on Wednesdays 4:15-5:15 pm, starting January 31 and running through to March 7 at Nunweek Park

Level 2: Year 7-8 (school years)

  • Sessions on Wednesdays from 5:15-6:15 pm are FULL, starting January 31 and running through to March 7 at Nunweek Park
  • We are now running another Level 2 group from 4:15-5:15 pm for athletes registering after 10:00am on January 23rd.

Level 3: Year 9-13 (school years)

  • Sessions are on Thursdays 4.30-5.30pm, starting February 1 and running through to March 8 at Marist Park
  • Please note, there a NO SPOTS left for goalkeepers in this group. If you are a goal keeper who fits into this age bracket and has missed out, please contact us.

 Each level will be split into skill appropriate groups which allows us to cater for athletes with Canterbury representative experience right through others with limited hockey experience and all those in between. *Please note, all participants should have at least one year of playing experience. 

Participants will need their hockey gear: stick, shin pads, mouth guards, appropriate clothing to train in and drinks bottles..

Goalkeepers are welcome. We run keeper specific drills with specialist coaches for at least half of every session (usually more).  Sessions are run in small groups with lots of repetition and plenty of feedback. Keepers must provide their own gear.

All up Hockey Accelerators: Quick Start is a great opportunity for young athletes to learn from the best as they have fun and enjoy the learning that will help them develop as hockey players in the future.

Get in quick as spaces are limited!
