Fortitude offer a range of coach education sessions specifically for schools and clubs. We understand the needs of hockey programmes to nurture all aspects of hockey from goalscoring to goalkeeping. Our coaches have delivered within schools and clubs for the last 6 years.


One of the crucial parts of any successful programme is joined up thinking. It is incredibly valuable that all coaches share a common goalkeeping philosophy and language. The culture of the whole hockey programme will benefit for both players and coaches.
