HiPac and Futures Cup Squads announced

Futures Cup Players 2013/14
England Hockey are delighted to announce the 2014 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 both on and off the pitch. The U15s will travel to Sportspark Weetwood, Leeds and the U17s to Lilleshall National Sports Centre, Shropshire for three days of training from 26 – 28 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.  Two days of training/preparation are held in October prior to the squads coming together for the competition in Cannock which takes place from 30 October – 2 November.

Details of the 2014 squads are below. Congratulations to all those selected.
