The SJB Hockey & Tennis Academy

The SJB AcademyRun by Olympic Gold Medallist Steve Batchelor, the SJB Academy is an inspiring environment for children to develop their sporting ability. Our qualified hockey & tennis coaches specialise in working with children to develop their individual skills, fitness, tactical awareness, match play and teamwork. Based at Cranleigh School (10 miles from Guildford), we welcome children from all schools and of all abilities - from beginners right up to junior regional representative (JRPC) level.

Our Hockey Academy runs term time hockey coaching sessions for 5-17 year olds of all abilities, from absolute beginners to regional level players. Sessions are held after school on Wednesdays and Fridays; and on Sunday mornings.  As well as structured group coaching we make sure each child receives the individual guidance and tuition they need to progress.  If you come along regularly, joining as a Member will save you money on session costs. Or, you can simply ‘Pay as you Play’ at the standard cost.

We act as a feeder to local hockey clubs so when children are ready they can easily move up to the next level. Currently our Hockey Academy, on Fridays and Sundays, has over 150 members - with 30+ regulars taking part across our weekly training sessions.

We also run hockey coaching courses to help develop teachers and club coaches of all levels. Guest instructors include experienced international coaches and players.
