HiPAC and Futures Cup 2012 squad lists

England Hockey are delighted to announce the 2012 HiPAC (High Performance Assessment Camps) and Futures Cups Squads Lists.

The High Performance Assessment Camp (HiPAC) takes place annually during October and is all about training. Young people in the U15 and U17 age groups are selected from the JRPC Cluster Days to come together and train with some of the country’s finest coaches. As an integral step on the Single System ladder, the HiPACs aim to show players in the U15 and U17 age groups that training is as important as competition and they will be taken through a number of sessions on the pitch and in the classroom. The U15s go to Tonbridge School, Kent and the U17s go to the University of Leeds for three days of training from 28th – 30th October.

In the U16 and U18 age groups, players learn about the highs and lows of competition at the Futures Cup which is a competition based on a Junior International tournament. Players making their way up the ladder train one year, compete in the second, train in the third and compete again in the final year.

Two days of training/preparation are held in October prior to the squads coming together for the competition in Cannock which takes place from 1st – 4th November.

Details of the 2012 squads are below.  Congratulations to all those selected.
