Our Coaching Programme was originally devised by GB bronze medallist at London 2012, Crista Cullen, and has been built on by some of the top coaches in the country to ensure that we deliver cutting edge and quality coaching advice.

HMC have trained managers on every site who come from a variety of different backgrounds. We actively recruit primary school teachers, PGCE students, childcare professionals and highly qualified sports and activity staff in order to ensure that our camps are as safe and effective as possible, and that we meet the high standards set and expected by Ofsted.
We recognise the importance of health and safety and child welfare and as such we are the only provider of our kind that has training developed in partnership with Cardinus Risk Management and approved by the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management. All of our staff whether they are an assistant coach or regional manager take part in our approved online training. Without exception, all of our coaching staff are NGB qualified, DBS checked and have completed our own comprehensive training.
We value our coaches experience very highly and employ several current players as HMC coaches. Their experience of playing competitive hockey adds great value and insight into what is required to play at the highest level.
Many of our HMC coaches play at a high level, coach at school, club and representative level. Some of our outstanding staff have experience of coaching abroad with talented young players, as well as in developing countries across the globe.
We take our responsibilities for the care of each child at our camps very seriously. This page is designed to provide all necessary and useful information for parents; from the timings of a typical day to our booking terms and conditions.
