A Talent Centre club is a club that provides high quality provision for players at early talent development level (Talent Foundations). This provision will be embedded within the club’s junior programme. Talent Centre accreditation recognises the quality of a club’s talent development environment and provision, not individual players.

England Hockey will recognise, through accreditation, environments within the Talent System that provide high quality talent development. In time, we envisage the operation of around 100-120 Talent Centres so that every child should have reasonable access to one or more of these opportunities if they wish to and if it is right for them.

England Hockey is delighted to welcome Expressions of Interest from clubs who are aspiring to work towards the accreditation in Cohort 2 (September 2022 – June 2023). To express interest please complete the form below by 17th July 2022. 

The Expression of Interest form is intended to capture the current position and readiness of the club to work towards Talent Centre Accreditation.
