Performance Centre Squads Announced

Performance Centre

The England Hockey Performance Centre squads for 2017 has been announced. This is the start of an exciting development to The England Hockey Player Pathway. 

There will be seventeen Performance Centres strategically located across England to maximise opportunity and player development. Through this model England Hockey want to move talent development to a higher level by providing frequent, high quality contact time for a targeted group of players with appropriate competition to support player development, in order to develop an oversupply of high calibre players for National Age Group Squads.

Ed Barney Performance Director is delighted to see Performance Centre come into full effect. 

"Performance Centres will provide a stretching and challenging environment that supports the development of more exceptional players. The Talent Development team and Performance Centre coaches will be ensuring that Performance Centres provide a high quality, needs-based, open and flexible environment that accelerates and deepens the development of a broad group of players across the country. It’s imperative that we make more progress with the development of young players nationwide!"
