England Age Group trials this October

England Age Group trials this October
With the planned 2020 edition of Futures Cup cancelled due to COVID-19, England Hockey have been considering various options to effectively observe and assess players for England U16 and U18 Age Group programmes.   
 
We are excited to be hosting a series of days to observe players in a number of contexts. The training days will take place from 25th to 30th October.  
 
To support ‘selection’ for these days, we have a new process, inviting nominations from Performance Centre, club and school coaches.
 
With many players having had little hockey related activity over the last six months, it is important that we have the most robust selection possible, and with this in mind, we are expanding the process to include nominations from club and school coaches.  
 
This nominations process will open from 09 September 2020. We invite coaches considering a player for nomination to access further information by clicking HERE.  
 
The nomination window will close at 17:00hrs on Monday 28th September 2020. A panel will consider nominations before communicating to invited players during w/c 5th October 2020.
