For players who show a desire to compete in both internal and external tournaments at county and regional level.

The Format

The Academy programme will incorporate regular squad training sessions as well as incorporating a strength and conditioning programme. Players will also receive private lessons as part of their weekly programme to ensure a personalised approach to learning and developing their individual game style.


Our primary aim is to provide a safe and inspiring environment in which all players can learn and enjoy the sport we love. Using an integrated approach, children will develop sound fundamental technique, giving them the skills they need to compete at county and regional level. Lessons will cover the tactical situations of rally, attack and defend  and all sessions will instill our core values of RESPECT, RESILIENCE AND RESPONSIBILITY.

What comes next?

The Junior Academy

When your child turns 11 they will be assessed and can potentially join our Junior academy programme, where they will continue to develop their game.

"Just wanted to say how much my little boy is enjoying the ‘mini Reds’ sessions that you run- he’s only been coming a few weeks, but as soon as we’ve been, he’s asking when the next lesson is! The lessons are varied and really keep the kids attention - Thank you!"
