UK summer hockey camps: PerfX

PerfX Hockey was founded with a vision to provide top class hockey camps in areas which players would not usually find such events. Ten years on from its first ever camp, it is now running at 12 different locations and boasts a programme which offers not only camps but 1-to-1 coaching, academies, drag flicking masterclasses and goalkeeper coaching.

The coaching team is filled with players and coaches who’ve all experienced the top levels of the game, but who are also able to break things down into simple to follow teaching points. All players are treated on an individual basis and we will work closely with them to develop their hockey skills and knowledge for the better. PerfX say they are proud to develop the person first as a priority, closely followed by developing the player.


Specialist hockey coaching which is heavily focused on developing technical skills, helping young players to improve PERFormance and create eXcellence.

What they say

We have a huge range of equipment including inflatable pitches, ball machines, skills challenge stations and weighted hockey balls. We have an outstanding coaching team who are passionate about helping each individual player and we do things in a way that players are easily able to transfer their learnings into their gameplay.

What sets us apart is how closely we work with each player – we don’t use a one size fits all model, we try to develop each specific individual and tailor the practices to their needs, including goalkeepers.

Customer testimonial

“The PerfX team deliver non-stop action at their hockey camps. From young ages through to young adults, all of the players’ skills are developed. But more than this is the love and commitment to the game of hockey that they engender. My son and daughter have been with the PerfX team for 4 years now and as a non-playing parent I know they are in safe and experienced hands”.

At PerfX Hockey players are encouraged to try new and difficult skills, with coaches on hand to help them get better

“We have also made use of the 1-to-1 coaching sessions. Tailoring the individual coaching to aspiring young players takes playing ability, game awareness and strength and conditioning to a new level. As regular users of the 1-to-1 coaching my son has become a stronger and more team aware player which has progressed him through the club structure. My daughter at the age of 18 has gained much valued confidence having left hockey at 13 years old to pursue netball. Her return to hockey and off into the University hockey team has only been made possible through the PerfX 1-to-1 programme. Five star service at the right price point is everything a parent looks for and look no further than PerfX.” Iain, Staffordshire.

“Thank you for the half term camp today – Katy & Dilwyn loved them. They said it was one of the best courses they’ve ever been on and they go to loads so that’s a big compliment. They really keen to do the Summer sessions too” Sarah, Wales
