Ansley Hockey Academy

Plymouth Marjon HC ‘Ansley Hockey Academy’ 

A high quality player development programme, supporting players' technical, tactical and physical hockey development. 

The Academy is accessible to PMHC players and players from other clubs, alike.

The 2018/19 season sees an evolution of the Academy, with all PMHC Junior age groups now being able to benefit from the Academy's progressive coaching methods through their standard training programme, termed Academy-Core. For all players up to and including U14s, the first two weeks of in-week coaching each month will be Academy-lead and supported by the J&Y coaching team. This initiative is designed to give all age groups the same technical development, following a progressive programme, allowing players to be exposed to a range of different coaches and tosupport our young coaches' own development.   

In addition, players wishing to benefit from the more advanced coaching elements offered by the Academy can subscribe to the new Academy+ programme. Please pre-book to secure a place - email
