In this section, you will find a copy of the Academy Curriculum 20/21, plus two sets of session plans aimed at U8-U12s and U14-U18s.

There is also a copy of the TBB Academy Coach and Manager Code of Conduct for you to read.

All coaches will need to fill in their own risk assessment documents and these will need to be update regularly. I have written an Example Academy Risk Assessment  for you to use as a basis. Covid-specific risk assessments are available here: https://www.teambathbuccaneers.co.uk/returning_to_competitive_play

Please use the session plans as you see fit, they are numbered but you do not have to use them in that order. Have a look at our Season Session Planner Examples if you would like some inspiration on how to plan over the course of a season. 

If you would like to add your own session plans or want to discuss those that are listed, please contact the Junior Academy Director of Hockey, Toby Blong ([email protected])
