How do I get involved?
Players are nominated to attend a Performance Centre by their Academy Centre. Players can be nominated from the U15 and U17 age groups. Players who consistently demonstrate strong skills are invited to Performance Centres
If you are not selected for an Performance Centre do not worry, you should continue to develop your hockey through school, club and Academy Centre activity. You may be nominated to attend a Performance Centre later in the season.
What are the entry and exit points?
Players enter Performance Centre in September. There are transition points during the year where players may be selected for a Performance Centre.
