The academy continues to thrive year on year and now contains over 200 children aged 15 to 18. In order to be selected for the academy, you must first participate in our Learn To Play programme.


The club contains an array of teams that includes under 9's, 11's, 13's, 15's and 18's that compete and train on a weekly basis in either the EIHA southern leagues or our specialised local in hours leagues. Our club has specifically designed progression pathways to suit all genders and skill levels ranging from 4 years old all the way to seniors.
