EVO Hockey, in partnership with Hockey Mob Surrey, is delighted to welcome you to a performance mini-camp for Girls U10s. Hockey Mob Surrey is an independent parent-led initiative that, it is hoped, will enable the growth of a community of connected, hockey-supportive parents, spread across a range of clubs in the region.
This performance mini-camp is designed to bring together young players from different clubs and give them a flavour of the inspirational, world-class, creative and fun experience of an EVO Hockey camp. Note: players will be mixed up during this session, so as to have the opportunity to train with those from other clubs and schools, not just their regular teammates.
This session is open to a maximum 60 outfielders and 6 goalkeepers, on a first-come, first-served basis. The session is for U10/U9 girls only.

+ WHAT MAKES EVO SO GREAT?
We're glad you asked! See Our Story, where we explain the philosophy behind EVO Hockey and what sets us apart. But here's the short version -
Our events are coached by the world's top senior players, up and coming junior internationals and some of the best creative coaching talent out there. Read more about our amazing coaching team.
We are trusted & recognised by the international hockey community. Our events have been featured by the FIH (hockey's world governing body) and we have been invited to showcase at international hockey events such as the Champions Trophy. We regularly attract the world's best players to coach and young players travel from across the UK to attend, on recommendation from players and coaches.
Our events are tailored to the players attending. You provide your playing information on registration and we make sure that, whatever your level, the programme you are on is optimised for you. In this way we have successfully developed players from complete beginner to junior international level.
Our events are creative, innovative and fun. We show young players hockey styles, philosophies and ideas from around the world, inspiring them to learn new skills and think about hockey in different ways. Sport psychology, strength & conditioning, video work and more are used to ensure maximum development benefit and enjoyment for all players.
+ WHY SHOULD WE TRUST YOU WITH OUR YOUNG PLAYERS?
At EVO Hockey we are extremely serious about the welfare of all players. Our eventss have been designed by people with significant experience in coaching youth, club and school hockey. Chris Bowen, who designed and oversees the EVO camps program, has previously been Head of Hockey at Epsom College, Head of Hockey Development at Whitgift School and is currently Performance Director of Hockey at Reigate Grammar School.
With EVO, you can be confident that your young players are under the supervision of top coaches who have experience in working with children, the required DBS checks and appropriate first aid training.
+ WHAT EQUIPMENT DO WE NEED TO BRING?
For outfield players, gumshields and shinpads are an absolute requirement and no young player will be allowed to take part in the sessions without these, unless parents sign a consent recognising the risks of doing so. We would NEVER advise playing hockey without gumshields and shinpads, at any age! Beyond that, clothes suitable for outdoor sport and the weather at the time are advised and astroturf shoes should be worn (not football boots). A hockey stick should be brought by your child but please note that we can supply a limited amount of sticks on request, so if one is needed please ask us beforehand to ensure availability!
For goalkeepers, it is essential to bring a FULL goalkeeper kit to the event, as we only have a very limited amount of equipment available at EVO. If your child doesn't own a kit but plays for a club or school, we recommend you ask them for use of their equipment during our camps - our experience is that those organisations will often be willing to assist. However, please check any borrowed kit to ensure you have a complete set. If you are unable to source a kit, please contact us.
+ WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS BAD?
This is the UK and we are made of strong stuff! We play on all-weather pitches, so expect the event to run, rain or shine! Please ensure your children have sufficient clothing for the vagiaries of the British weather!
Fear not, however. If the weather gets too bad, most of our venues have some indoor space that we can use for cover if needed.
The only thing that can scupper us is if the pitches are unplayable, because they are frozen. Therefore, for events in December and February, we operate an Adverse Weather Policy, which sets out what will happen in the event of bad conditions, when any decisions will be made, how they will be communicated to you and what will happen to any bookings.
+ DO YOU PROVIDE LUNCH & / OR REFRESHMENTS?
No. Please provide all drinks / refreshments your child may need for the session.
