Fortitude Hockey Training Centre

Holcombe Park, home to Holcombe Hockey Club, is set to become a Training Centre for Fortitude Hockey during the 2019-20 season, and beyond.  Holcombeians Sports Club has entered a three-year partnership with Fortitude Hockey to play host to one of its Training Centres for specialist Hockey goalkeeping coaching.

Goalies are often said to be a rare breed and slightly misunderstood. While this can be true it doesn't mean they should be neglected. Fortitude goalkeeper coaching has been developed to ensure this is no longer the case by specialising in the position. Fortitude's aim is to help the next generation of goalkeepers and coaches by specialising and spreading what they know with the wider hockey community. Fortitude does this by working passionately, constantly learning and sharing their practices with others.

Jon Rye, Chairman, said “After an opportunity presented itself at the EuroHockey Club Trophy back in April, Holcombeians Sports Club has been in discussion with Fortitude Hockey to work out how best to support goalkeepers within the area. I am excited to see this opportunity flourish into a long-term partnership, and already demonstrates how hosting a high-profile event can make a long-term impact to the local hockey community."

Tom Millington, Head Coach and Co-Founder of Fortitude Hockey, said “This presents an exciting opportunity for us to explore further avenues in a key hockey location. I am personally extremely excited to be working alongside Holcombe HC and the facilities they have are some of the best in the country with two hockey pitches as well as a training area that works brilliantly for goalkeepers. The club is well positioned for hockey players around Kent, East London, Essex and further afield to easily access. Much like us, the club has big ambitions so it’s great to be partnered with them. We are very much looking forward to calling Holcombe Park our home in Kent.”
