Over the course of the next few weeks I will do a write up on the 2015 camps and announce dates for 2016. Photos from 2015 will be put on our FACEBOOK page, Thanks for all of your support. Also at the end of camp 2 we had a coin collection in support of the TEENAGE CANCER TRUST having been inspired by TOM ASHLEY's attendance at both camps. Along with the profits from the tuck shop we all have raised a wonderful £416.06 which will go to help those young people live life just a bit more normally.
In the last month we have had 633 unique visitors to the site, which is incredible. And much of what I have written in the last few weeks has been quite boring and dour so forgive me for this. But the nub of what we do is aimed at inspiring young hockey player to play the game so I thought it a good idea to make some truly exciting announcements. You don't need to tell your children if you wish so they get the surprise, so here goes..
1/ camp 1, day 1 a visit from x2 real superstars of British hockey. Adam Dixon and Ollie Willars are coming to see us just after lunch. A bit of chatting, a bit of pitch time and a lot of photo and signature opportunities for everyone. By the way I coached them both as very, very young boys!
2/?camp2 - a visit from new megastar Sam Ward, ditto (in all counts) Adam and Ollie, except he will turn up when least expected. who will spot him first?
3/ some breathtaking food on offer including , over the two camps a brand new ice cream from Leamington - we think that there will be up to x18 different flavours on offer over both camps
4/ we have some spectacular music on offer on an evening on both camps - how about a band featured on BBC Radio 2 and who were featured at the recent Isle of Wight festival.
5/ New coaches, new menus, new player timetables, new shirts PLUS all the old favourites - water slide, silent disco, tuck shop, hockey shop and a wealth of great coaches.
We are struggling to upload the meeting times etc. - we have cut and pasted the important thing for you. please note that there is a Medical consent form and a Player undertaking form to complete. This can be completed at registration. IF YOU ARE NOT BRINGING YOUR OWN CHILD THEN PLEASE EMAIL US (firstname.lastname@example.org) AND WE WILL SEND YOU THE FORMS TO COMPLETE, SIGN AND THEN GIVE TO WHOEVER IS BRINGING YOUR CHILD(REN) TO CAMP.

Legends Camp Shop
While you are waiting for the players' briefing, which starts at 10:30, please have a look at the Legends hockey shop. This is located in the 6th form centre and includes the following: tuck shop, hockey equipment, legends clothing to buy or order.
The tuck shop will open twice per day, after lunch and after dinner, although players are welcome to ask one of the pastoral or catering staff for help if no one else is around.
Players are also asked to have a look at the main camp notice board (in the 6th form centre) as here they will find the list of their social groups. These are the groups that the players are in when they play in the camp tournament 'War of the Worlds'. We know some players like to be together and for much of the camp this will be the case. However, we split the groups so that there is a fair split of genders, ages and abilities. The only other time that these groups get together is at lunch, dinner and for washing up duties. Coaching groups will be decided during the late morning after the first round of the hockey competition ‘War of the Worlds’.
Parents can leave at any time but they are also welcome to join in the players briefing and walkabout tour to familiarise themselves with the location.
Players briefing 10:45 to 11:00
All players and pastoral staff will take a tour of the camp to understand the location, the do's & don'ts and where each of the facilities are.
War of the Worlds - 11:30 to 13:00
The camp has distinct and different coaching and social groups, the social groups consist of 8 planets: Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Neptune, Mercury, Pluto and Earth. These are sub-divided into Young and Old. Hence there are a total of 16 teams. Each social group has at least one leader and two Helpers.
Just after lunch the players will receive their camp shirts.
Medication and ailments
Music- One of the key components of the camp is that music ('DEX music is good music') is enjoyed at meal times and we are encouraging the players to create playlists for one of the meals. They should bring along their choice on their phone/MP3 player and we will try and play it. The camp holds a SPOTIFY account. Breakfast playlists should be very chilled and relaxing, lunch playlists should be quite upbeat, dinner playlists should be upbeat as well whilst supper playlists should be very, very chilled. Remember 'Dex music is good music'!
Payment - Please check you bank statements and records to ensure that all bookings are paid for. We would very much appreciate it if any outstanding monies are transferred before the start of the camp (sort code 070116 account 31685299 and make sure it identifies the surname of the child and camp, for example DEXTER SC2), unless a prior arrangement has been made. Would You also confirm the transfer to me by email and give me the last three digits of your account number. This is to make sure I can allocate the payment correctly.
News - 13 July 2015
The details of registration times, kit, emergency contact, collection times etc. should be going out on Wednesday. If you do not get the email the information will be uploaded here at the same time.
More interesting news - the programme planning team have had a long meeting today thrashing out the programme. We have, we think been clever with the timings of everything so there will be lots going on. We promise all sessions will be different, that means if you are on both camps you will not repeat anything. The catering group has been hard at work, my house smells like a cake shop! Again only the camp favourites repeated with lots of new stuff.
We are absolutely stacked out with new things happening all the time - new gadgets, truly mind blowing events and visitors. The staffing is stronger than ever before. Hoping you are going to love Legends 2015!
There are some major changes to the 'Planet team' programme with lots of innovation.
We are looking forwards to meeting players from all over the world this year we have Sophia and Karen coming again from Chile in South America, we have three players from two different parts of Spain (as well as a set of parents), two players from Jersey, two from Singapore as well as big groups from Derby, Worcester and a great swathe of players from King's High in Warwick, Warwick School, Bilton Grange as well as from Princethorpe College and a Rugby and East Warwickshire Hockey Club. Thank you everyone for your support.
We can announce that STX are the official supporter of the camps this year and they will not only have their impressive range on display but there will be some to try out as well. They have also kindly donated some brilliant sticks as prizes.
See you all very soon!
News - 4 July 2015
Equipment and clothing - do you need to get anything before the camp then read on - Tom who runs the camp and online shop for us sent me this in an email "May be worth reminding people you have your Legends shop on site. This coming week we are uploading all new season kit and there will be 20% discount on all products for Legends attendees. Ideally we get everyone there to buy rather than them shopping on Barringtons before. If they want to try before they buy (on the little astro i have with me on shop days) they will need to send an email with the product they want and we can bring it". He will have a discount code ready shortly. To get hold of him email email@example.com.
I know that Tom is bringing his printing equipment with him and you can have your camp shirt printed with your name or nick name for less than £5 (or thereabouts).

We are making sure there will be a marquee at the bottom of the 6th form lawn and attempting to get some brilliant lighting in there for you. needless to say we will carry on testing the food menus to give you what you want, but we are 90% sure that we will be making available a STARBUCKS COFFEE BAR - not many hockey camps can offer that! Watch this space.
