DARE TO EXCEL
Flame Hockey Academy is based in West Sussex and was founded in August 2016 by Lead Coach and Commonwealth Silver medallist Lucy Wood.
The Academy run holiday camps, small group masterclasses and private coaching for young players across the South East of England. We have an experienced and diverse coaching team that bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to share with players of all abilities and ages.
OUR MAIN AIMS:
Provide a fun but structured learning experience where young players develop new skills and gain the confidence to apply them in competitive matches.
To give players an opportunity to consolidate their skills and develop their tactical awareness in non assessed sessions.
To ensure a safe environment where boys and girls of mixed ages and abilities are able to enjoy developing their hockey skills together.
To enable young athletes to understand the importance of healthy nutrition and fitness training in reaching their potential as a hockey player.

Parent of OLIVER (Aged 13)
I just wanted to say a big thank you on behalf of my son Oliver. He has really enjoyed your camps and also the guest players that come, who along with yourself, inspire him to stretch himself further. The coaching is of a very high standard and attention is given to players at both a group and personal level. Oliver comes away from the camp feeling that he has gained new skills in a fun yet structured way. Thank you again!
