AASE Programme

Futures Cup 2011 Boys Competition
The Advanced Apprenticeship in Sport (AASE) programme is a government funded apprenticeship scheme designed to directly measure the athletes' ability to plan, apply and evaluate their development in the appropriate aspects of hockey.

The programme covers a range of modules:

  • Strength and Conditioning
  • Psychology
  • Nutrition
  • Media and Communication Skills
  • Career development
  • Lifestyle Managament
  • And many more
Who delivers AASE?
The AASE programme is delivered in partnership between England Hockey and Loughborough College. Players will be expected to attend four national camps that provide a rich blend of on-pitch technical and tactical sessions, presentations, 1-2-1s and elements of portfolio work.

How do I take part?
For the 2017/2018 intake players must have been born between 1 September 2000-31 August 2001 and have been nominated for invitation to the programme by their Performance Centre.

Players born between 1 September 2000-31 August 2001, attended the U17 HiPAC in October 2016 and were subsequently selected for the Futures Cup in August 2017 are also eligible.

Please note - AASE is part of the European Social Fund.
