2013 HiPAC and Futures Cups Squads Lists

Young people shake hands at the Futures Cup

England Hockey are delighted to announce the 2013 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 will go to the University of Leeds and the U17s will go to Lilleshall National Sports Centre, Shropshire for three days of training from 27 – 29 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 31 October – 3 November.

Details of the 2013 squads are below. Congratulations to all those selected.
