GB Elite Development Programme

The programme that helps athletes transition from NAGS to senior international hockey


Launched in September 2017, the purpose of the Great Britain Elite Development Programme (EDP) is to provide players who have the potential to become medal-winning Olympians of the future the best possible opportunity to achieve their international hockey ambitions. 

As with the senior international programmes, the GB EDP is coordinated by England Hockey on behalf of all the home nations. This work forms part of the Great Britain Framework (link to page referencing this under Governance) that exists between England Hockey, Scottish Hockey and Hockey Wales.

The programme is funded by UK Sport and the National Lottery as part of Great Britain Hockey's World Class Programme.
