Firebrands run a large and vibrant Academy Section welcoming 7 to 16 year old boys and girls. Players can be selected to train and play for senior teams from the age of 13 with Academy and adult coaches working closely to develop players, we take U16 players at an adult level.

At Firebrands we recognise the need to develop talent, through structured coaching and player mentoring, in a safe and friendly environment. Our coaching programme is designed by an England Hockey Level 3 coach. Our coaches are DBS checked and experienced in positively encouraging Academy players to develop and work on their core skills.

The welfare of Academy members is of prime importance to us. We have two experienced welfare officers ready to offer advice and guidance on hockey or life matters where required. If you have any issues you would like to discuss, please contact our welfare officers Sonya Crutchely or Susie Ramsay at:
