We have the opportunity to offer some specialist goalkeeper coaching as part of the Derbyshire Development Centre sessions for U13 - U17 are groups over the summer. These sessions will be open to County and Club junior goalkeepers.


The coaches will be:

  • Taylor Jobson, Hockey Performance Programme Coordinator at Loughborough University, head coach of both the Men's and Womens 2s Loughborough university hockey teams.
  • Harrison Dunlop, Loughborough Students Man's 1st XI GK, who players internationally for Ireland U21 as well as for Loughborough Men's performance programme.
  • Other coaches as required.

Please be aware that the named coaches do have international commitments which do change at short notice, and exams, so may, on occasion, be unavailable. If this is the case, we will do our best to source replacement coaches to cover the sessions.

All training sessions will take place at BELPER HOCKEY CLUB.
