Under the careful and passionate guidance of Beckie and her coaching team the Sedbergh Hockey Course has grown bigger than we ever could have imagined. Children are engaged, challenged, and cared for in a manner that truly inspires them to have an experience which leaves them always wanting more and moving their game to the next level.

The children now have a new double astroturf hockey pitch to call home for their course experience, which allows each coach under Beckie’s leadership to use their skill set and character to positively impact positively on every single boy and girl in attendance. Tuesday Night Lights is an exciting addition to the programme that we are all looking forward to.

As with last summer the days on the course will be themed throughout the week to give some extra influence and buy in from all participants. It also allows the players to relate and connect more smoothly to their skills and the game. Some examples of the themes are below.

“When I watched the mini tournament on Thursday, I could already see an improved confidence in my daughter's hockey. She was prepared to try things that she wouldn't have tried in her 1st full season of hockey last year"


“Just a quick note to say a big thank you to all the hockey coaches this week. It was our son's first residential (age 10) and he has thoroughly enjoyed himself, learnt new skills and tried new experiences! It sounds like there was a really good balance between the technical hockey and some down time / leisure activities.“
