Top Hockey Clinic

SportWays, the world leaders in top hockey clinics and the only national hockey coaching company in South Africa are proud to present the SportWays flagship product, the SportWays TOP Hockey Clinic in the January 2022 school holidays!


The SportWays TOP Hockey Clinic 2022 (#THC22) is the BEST coaching clinic across SA! We have trained highly qualified professional SportWays Technical Directors over the last 12 years to present the highest quality hockey coaching in SA. We have the TOP coaches presenting and we will also have some of SA's TOP players joining the clinics as star players aka "TOPpers"! The SportWays TOP Hockey Clinic happens in the January school holidays annually at all major astro turf facilities for both guys and girls aged 6 to 18.


If you want to improve as a hockey player - you can NOT miss this clinic! Start your 2022 season the right way! If you want to be the best, you need to train with the best and that means training with SPORTWAYS at SA's best hockey coaching clinic!


Please note: In the past we have imported Dutch coaches for these clinics. Due to COVID this is NOT possible. However we have FIH qualified and SAHA qualified staff and these SportWays Technical Directors have been coaching around the world for SportWays Netherlands and running top SportWays clinics in SA for years already. We will have SA's TOP coaches and we will be adding some of the TOP past and present national players and Olympians as an extra treat. Hence... the SportWays TOP Hockey Clinic! You just can't get any better!



SportWays’ emphasis is on QUALITY. This encompasses both our hockey program and the social interaction at our clinics. Fun & Learning are the main characteristics of all SportWays clinics and years of experience in both our organisation and our top SA and Dutch staff is a solid base for success. Each year the training programs are developed by top Dutch coaches to focus on the latest developments in hockey. This way the participants are guaranteed to learn the very latest techniques in the sport. We distinguish ourselves by paying maximum attention to the individual player and it is our mission that a SportWays clinic should be a special experience for each participant, regardless of his or her level of ability.

COVID: Please note hockey can be played at Covid level 3 adjusted restrictions and all our clinics are 100% covid compliant. After the 2021 clinics we ran nationally, it's very clear that hockey does not spread covid when you follow the clear and simple protocols to have good safe hockey fun and learning.

TIMING: Some of the clinics are scheduled across school days (private schools go back early). In these cases the clinic will start AFTER school and run from 3pm to 8pm so ALL players can attend. We have done this before many times. The website is NOT good at showing clinic times, so please check out the pdf download below to make 100% sure.
