Over the past few years Warrnambool College has developed a strong reputation for our Hockey Academy. Our senior boys previously won the State final, and since then many of our junior, intermediate and senior teams have displayed excellent efforts attempting to emulate their success.
Whether you are a seasoned player or a beginner to the game, the Hockey Academy is great for developing each player’s hockey skills as well as encouraging their sense of fair play and teamwork. Throughout the year, starting midway through the first term, senior students and teachers run coaching clinics for our junior academy members. This mentoring involves teaching students the basic skills of the game including technique, tactics and positioning, as well as developing team spirit and teamwork amongst the players. During the year, students of all levels will have the chance to compete against other schools from around the State, which often involves a trip to Melbourne. Junior Academy members also have the opportunity to participate in the under 13’s competition run by the Warrnambool Hockey Association. We look forward to seeing you on the pitch in 2018!
