First for KZN hockey

2015-09-09 06:00

HOCKEY players from St Davids, Wembley and Hermannsburg will join school players in the Investec Hockey Academy course in Durban in October.

The academy offers courses for school-going players at different levels who will work with a line-up of coaches and players, including former World Cup, Olympic Games, Commonwealth Games and All Africa­ Games players.

The two-day courses are more than physical skills training, they allow personal development through a comprehensive look at current international tactical and technical trends used by professionals, providing an understanding of what it takes to play at the highest level.

The academy offers courses for players at all levels - a fundamental player’s course (aged eight to 12), an intermediate player’s course (13 to 15), an advanced player’s course (16 to 18) and a specialist goal keeper’s course (eight to 18).

While the academy is a platform for aspiring­ professional hockey players to be noticed and trained, it is also a platform for female hockey players at all levels to improve­ their skills and share the camaraderie.

How much food do you need to concentrate?

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
