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.

Firebrands hockey is FUN and expansive, you can learn to play a new sport and make new friends, you can improve on your skills and then achieve your goals.
