Norfolk Hockey is running five Hockey Talent Roadshow Coaching Days this summer and is seeking talented young hockey players.
The Roadshows are a great opportunity to have a fun day playing hockey whilst picking up the latest skills in this exciting Olympic sport. The sessions are aimed at boys and girls aged 12 to 16 [ birthdates 2001-1997.] There are four venues and players are welcome to attend one or more days. There is a dedicated coaching session for goalkeepers.
