UK summer hockey camps: EVO Hockey

EVO Hockey’s ethos is to inspire, mentor and develop creativity in hockey players of all abilities and connects grassroots players with some of the world’s top international players and innovative coaches.

Their coaching teams, say EVO, are unparalleled within hockey and include over 150 different international players and coaches, from more than 30 countries. Since its founding in 2015, this has included four World Player of the Year winners and 18 Olympic and World Cup medallists.

This unique, multi-national learning environment encourages players to take ideas from multiple different hockey philosophies and cultures around the world and bring them into their own game. Their camps and events have been designed with sport psychology input to ensure that, whether complete beginners or a high performance athletes, players come away enthused within hockey and learning new and different concepts for play.


Inspiring young players to think differently and connecting them with top players and coaches from around the world.

Customer testimonial

“Overall, the camp was some of the best few days of my life so far. You can tell how hard the EVO team have worked for this and I strongly recommend that every hockey player should go on at least one EVO camp in their life. You learn an incredible amount and have an insane amount of fun all at once. It was a truly five-star experience.” Extract from blog post of Osian Rees, young hockey player, about his EVO experience.
