Registrations are now being accepted for the 2021 Development Centre (DC) programme for all age groups and in line with a recent England Hockey directive, age group squads will now be determined by academic year, and not by birth year.

The 2021 programme will commence in September with all sessions taking place on Friday evenings at a variety of venues across the county. Goalkeepers will receive specialist coaching from dedicated goalkeeper coaches and these sessions will all take place at Yateley Hockey Club, with a training schedule similar to that of outfield squads.

Provisional Dates (boys) - 17th September 1st, 15th & 29th October 12th November

Provisional Dates (girls) - 10th & 24th September 8th, 22nd October 5th November
