Amersham and Chalfont HC - Holiday Hockey Camps

Summer 2020 Hockey Camps 

We are delighted to announce that ACHC expects to be running camps again this Summer, and that registration for these camps has now opened.


All the camps are suitable for members, friends and non-members alike, so please do spread the word and forward this invitation to your friends. 


All camps are run at the pitch in Amersham. Assuming that we are allowed to do tackling and small sided games by the time the camps start then the format of the day starts with registration between 9.45 - 10am, with pick-up at 3pm. 

A packed lunch is required, along with the normal hockey things (mouth guards, shin pads, trainers/astros and suncream).  

 

Where we will eat lunch will depend on the regulations at the time – either in the clubhouse or we will erect a shelter outside in case of strong sun or rain. 


We have camps for a variety of levels and age groups, please see details below, with booking and payment information below this schedule:

Cost, booking & payment details

The cost will be £25 per day, or £45 for 2 days or siblings in the same week, with each additional sibling costing £20 per day. There may be an incremental charge for Friday’s if we bring in the Mens 1’s coach (a recent international), but we will discuss that with those who have signed up once we know we can do tackling and small sided games



If your child / children would like to attend, please fill in the attached booking form and return it to hockeycampsachc@gmail.com , PLEASE DO NOT make payment at the moment. We will confirm whether the camps will go ahead nearer the time – as you can imagine it depends on the regulations currently in force. Be aware that one option is to do a 90 minute session for half of the group in the morning, and 90 minutes in the afternoon for the other half if we cannot do tackling and games (obviously at a reduced cost, but what that will be depends on whether it is a 5:1 or 10+:1 Coaching ratio). But you are not committed to a 90 minute session if you have signed up for the day camp.



Notes

All age groups are based on the 2020-21 season (hopefully) starting in September. 



We can accommodate complete beginners in all groups except Friday’s.



A provisional place will be confirmed once registration has been received. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis (as per the above we won’t be taking payment just yet as we need to wait to see what happens with EHB guidelines).



Each camp will initially be limited to a maximum of 25 children, after which time a waiting list will operate. If demand is high we will attempt to find an additional coach to allow more children to participate.

And that's it, hope to see lots of you soon.
