Canterbury Hockey is pleased to announce the Canterbury U18 Men's and Women's teams following the trials held earlier this month.
The selectors have picked a very strong Regional team to defend their National Regional title in Dunedin from 8 July - 14 July with eight players returning to the side and another experienced regional player joining the team from Midlands. Coach Josh Kumbaroff and his assistant Tom Mallon will be looking to utilise the new players from the championship winning side last year to bring added experience and talent.
The Association team will also be wanting to hold on to their championship title from last year, and with a mixture of returning players and exciting newcomers they will head to North Harbour full of confidence.

The women's Regional team will be looking to go one better than their second place finish last year and they also take an experienced side away to tournament with nine returning players. The side will be coached by Chris Goldsbury and Rachel McCann who will be looking to blend this experience with the exciting new players coming into the team.
The Association team will head to Palmerston North to defend their title, and coaches Joe Piggott and Cathy Baker will have six returning players and a good bunch of younger talent to work towards bringing the trophy home for consecutive seasons.
