- Guests are invited to train in winter and spring.
- Fall training days will be Monday evenings and midday Saturdays. Spring training will be Friday evenings and midday Sundays.
- During the winter season the Academy will not participate in indoor hockey, but will offer training opportunities around outdoor hockey and tactical, physical and mental areas of the game. (As we do not offer indoor hockey through our Empower Field Hockey Academy, our members are welcome to play indoor for another club during the winter.)
