Elite Hockey Camps

The IHA are offering two hockey camps this summer.

UCD Elite Camp

This is the first IHA Elite Hockey camp designed for the serious player (Girls and Boys aged 12-17) who is keen to move their hockey to a new level. The camp will be run by former National Men’s Coach David Passmore who will be assisted by Shirley McCay and Lisa Jacob, and will include coaching sessions from national Women’s Head Coach Darren Smith along with Ireland U18 Coach Richie Malone.

The camp will include key techniques such as aerials, goalscoring and drag flicking along with the main skills identified by the top coaches as being the most essential. Individual video feedback will also be a component of the camp. Ideal for the aspiring provincial or national level player, or for those who really want to progress their game, this camp will require commitment and the willingness to work hard.

This camp has been designed to coincide with the European U18 Championships being held simultaneously at UCD and all attending players will be afforded free passes to the tournament and will also complete some game analysis during breaks in the camp. The cost for this camp will be €185.
