HOCKEY WALES NATIONAL AGE GROUP SELECTION ANNOUNCED.

Hockey Wales National Age Group selection announced.


The National Age Group (NAG) programme prepares junior athletes for the rigorous demands of international hockey through a high-quality training programme.


In line with their senior counterparts, players are coached on technical, tactical, lifestyle, mental skills and strength & conditioning in line with the ‘Hockey for Life’ framework philosophy.


Head of Pathway for Hockey Wales, Kevin Johnson, believes that a balanced combination of playing and well-being will prepare the young players to perform well at this level, and for the transition to higher level teams in the future.


“The players are selected by the coaching teams that deliver the Hockey Wales Performance Pathway starting with 360⁰, through Aspire and then to National Age Grade.


“It is hoped that the system prepares the individuals to achieve all their aspirations, both on and off the hockey pitch.


“Hockey Wales would like to congratulate those that have been selected and wish them the very best for their time with the National Age Group.”
