Four Embley students have been selected to train and play at the Southampton Performance Centre, which is part of England Hockey’s Player Pathway.
Congratulations to Oakley (Year 12), Elvyn (Year 10), Kaden (Year 9) and Harry A (Year 9). Training involves eight evening sessions, five-day sessions and up to four competition days in 2020/21. Players are nominated to attend a Performance Centre by their Academy Centre for the U15 and U17 age groups by consistently demonstrating strong skills in training and matches.
“At Embley we are very proud of these students for being selected. We wish them all the best in their final match sessions in London this month which will determine if they are picked for The Futures Cup which runs over four days and sees the six squads battle it out to be crowned winners. The National Age Group Coaches attend this tournament to select for the England U16 and U18 squads,” said Mr Sandy Lawson, Hockey Coach.
Well done for getting to this stage during a pandemic and Embley wishes you luck in the final stages.
