Philly HC will run its training program for our club and non club players over the autumn season. Session focus will be high level skill development, tempo, power, and accuracy of passing, speed and power of player movement. Small match play will focus on developing players ability to maintain possession under pressure. Hockey specific conditioning will be included in these sessions.

Players will train over 8 weeks, twice weekly = 16 sessions.

Training sessions will be delivered on international specific water-base astroturf and SportCourt Defender Tiles.

Their are no try-out for our autumn training program. We encourage our players to attend this program to maintain and develop their skills in readiness for the winter indoor season.

All of our programs follow FIH rules. No cage goggles allowed unless medically necessary.
