During the summer of 2019 Devon Junior Hockey will be back to running our own independent Development Centres rather than combining with the South West Games as we did last year. These will run in Plymouth and Exeter on separate weekday evenings throughout June and July and are for players born in years 2005, 2006 and 2007 only who did not play within the Academy Centre (county) during the 2018/19 cycle.
The aim of these sessions is to introduce full pitch hockey to juniors, give them a taster of coaching within the player pathway and develop and assess players in preparation for the next academy cycle. Players are expected to attend all 4 training dates, players of suitable level from the development centres will be nominated for academy assessments in September.
*Please note only players nominated by DC centre coaches will progress to the academy assessments*
Please attend the centre most convenient for you.
