The EL Hockey Academy, formerly known as East London Mini Hockey, has been operating for more than 30 years, having trained players from all corners of East London. Over the last few years the Academy has gone through a revamp, this in order to keep up to date with the latest trends in hockey both locally and around the world.
Over the past few years the Academy has been pushing the boundaries of what is seen as conventional in the region. Our team of dedicated coaches have given many hours to improving their own skills and knowledge of the game. This can be seen in the training that is on offer during our sessions. Through our mentorship program, upcoming coaches get the opportunity to up skill under supervision, preparing them for Accredited Coaching Courses presented from the SA Hockey Association( SAHA). Many of our coaches have already completed their SAHA Level 1 courses, with Senior coaches having completed their SAHA Level 2.
Our coaches are actively involved in coaching at Primary and High Schools with in East London. We also have coaches applying their trade as Provincial Coaches, Umpires, & Technical Officials.
Over the years many parents and players alike have accredited the EL Hockey Academy with being one on the reasons that they or their children have gone on to compete at higher levels both in our Province and at National levels.
