Jackson Brothers Visit Childhood Club

IMG_7011.JPG

Tunbridge Wells Hockey Club was Ashley and Wesley's first ever Hockey Club and thanks to their childhood coach David Judge, they were invited back for an evening session to coach their juniors.
Ashley and Wesley grew up playing for Tunbridge Wells juniors whilst still pursuing young Ice Hockey careers. When the pair moved to Hawkenbury, Tunbridge Wells, they were lucky to have the club's home pitch almost in their back garden and Ice Hockey took a back seat. Thanks to David Judge, the boys Field Hockey careers blossomed from here on. They spent many years playing for the juniors and enjoying Sunday morning training before Ashley made his debut for the 1st XI at 14 yrs old, and it wasn't long until he was snapped up by East Grinstead.

They have 6 senior men's teams which includes the 'Monarchs' development side, a vets' team and a vets' grass specialist team (the Grasshoppers). They also have 4 ladies teams playing in the East and Kent Leagues.

The club still has a thriving junior section – with around 400 junior players and more than 18 teams, they have the ClubsFirst Accreditation from England Hockey which recognises the quality and depth of the club, especially at junior level.

Jackson 7 Coaching celebrate a successful launch

Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd August saw the launch of the Jackson 7 Coaching camps. From beginners to regional players, an age range from 9 years old to 17 years old and players who travelled as far as Poole, Dorset experienced the exciting launch.

The days were filled with fun challenges, skills and plenty of match play with our experienced coaches using their knowledge and skills to cater for all age groups. There were plenty of competitions such as; the hardest shot using our speed radar, obstacle courses, the Jackson 7 hole goalie, matches to finish off both days and the highlight was our very own slip n slide.

The camp was a huge success, it was much more than I imagined it to be. The players had constant smiles on their faces and the atmosphere around the entire day was amazing
— Ashley Jackson
To see so many players wearing the Jackson 7 t-shirt and enjoying the gadgets and fun games was excellent. The slip n slide was certainly a highlight and a really good way of training deflections
— Wesley Jackson

With our videographer and photographer from Double Three Productions hard at work on day two, keep an eye out for photographs and videos to follow. Social media activity was higher than ever over the two days, see some snapshots below.

Jackson 7 Coaching celebrate the launch with GuardianPro Mouthguards

To celebrate the launch of Jackson 7 Coaching, we are excited to announce that GuardianPro Mouthguards will be working with us at selected camps to ensure the safety for all players, offering their custom fit service.

GuardianPro Mouthguards specialise in the production of hand crafted, individually sculpted, one of a kind protection for all. Both Jackson 7 Coaching and GuardianPro Mouthguards, truly believe that there is no better protection for your mouth and teeth than a custom, fitted mouthguard. GuardianPro Mouthguard’s not only offer comfort and protection but also allow the flexibility to breath, drink and talk whilst wearing your mouthguard. 

GuardianPro carefully select a team of dental experts to work closely with schools and clubs enabling them to provide an expert service. This offers a convenient option and gives customers the highest quality fitting. Impressions of players’ teeth and mouth are taken and then sent back to the GuardianPro Dental Laboratory in Sussex to be hand crafted.

Both Ashley and Wesley Jackson wear a GuardianPro Mouthguard and vouch for the professionalism and most importantly the fit of the mouthguard whilst playing top level Hockey. In their view, it is much easier to breathe and speak than wearing other fitted mouthguards.

Guardian Pro will be attending the launch of Jackson 7 Coaching hockey camps on the 22nd and 23rd August, where all players will be given an opportunity to receive a custom fitted mouthguard from only £38. Even better than this, as a special offer, all players getting their mouthguard fit over the 2 days will receive a FREE ‘Jackson 7’ customisation.

Winning Hockey matches is about scoring goals.  This unique Conference is dedicated entirely to that, covering both open field goalscoring and the penalty corner.  Ashley Jackson is Great Britain’s all time leading goal scorer, and one of the few players in the world equally proficient in open play and with the drag flick.

In this presentation, illustrated by extensive match video, he will offer his thoughts on the strategies, techniques and training routines which underlie his success, and suggest how schools can improve their goalscoring with contemporary lessons from the elite game.
