Under 15 Trial Programme
Canterbury Hockey have changed the format for this year's U15 trials as follows. We will be running a three week U15 skills programme on Thursday afternoons at Nga Puna Wai, covering a range of physical, technical and tactical skills. This is an advanced development programme for those athletes wishing to trial for the Canterbury U15 representative teams.
The skills programme will be attended by the U15 selectors/coaches who will gauge each athlete’s ability. At the conclusion of the skills programme between 40 and 45 athletes (girls and boys) will then be selected to attend the U15 trials. Any players not selected to trial, will receive generic group based feedback.
The price per athlete to attend the three week skills programme is $50. [If cost is an issue please do not hesitate to contact us].
Athletes must be under the age of 15 as at 1 January 2019 and year 9, 10 or 11 at school to be eligible to take part in this programme.
PLEASE NOTE: Only athletes playing in their school SSP (1st XI) or SSL Division 1 teams, and/or their club’s highest Platinum team and above, will be considered for this skills programme.
