Camps, coach education and small group training sessions will be provided at Harrow School in North West London and different locations across the country. The Hockey Lab can come to your club or school reducing travel time and other limiting factors or cost implications. The aim of this is to create opportunities for all Hockey Players regardless of your current location, by providing access to high quality coaching to help ‘bridge the gap’ that currently exists in our sport.

Don't just take our word for it...
"Michael’s knowledge of the game, top level experience and attention to detail shone through his sessions with the Formby HC ladies players.
His approach to coaching engaged everyone, and provided a really strong learning environment. From tackling, to passing, to receiving the ball, he articulated the importance of stick position, body position and foot work. Making players think differently and break down the skills, to truly understand how they could improve was evident in such a small time. There were lots of take away messages, put simply, easy to understand and hard to forget. A clear focus on repeating these skills over the weeks ahead will bring demonstrable improvement across the teams.
Michael not only inspired our future generation but also our current generation and those later in their hockey journey with a focus on some new skills, hints and tips and a real understanding of the small things that make a huge difference."
Face to face training combined with digital support.
The Hockey Lab presents a platform to allow easy access to online sessions, video analysis and coach education webinars.
This platform effectively gives aspiring young hockey players access to an Elite level coach on their smart phone or laptop as an extra training aid or opportunity to develop.
Combined with face to face training with Michael and his team, THL members will receive the perfect blend of tuition to catapult them forward. This blend of digital and face to face training structure creates the perfect chemical compound for success.
