England Hockey Player Pathway

The County Hockey Association is proud to be working with the National Governing Body, England Hockey (EH) to build a progressive programme for Junior Hockey Players.

The county system is completing its 8th year of operation, completing the Junior Development Programme (Eight centres county wide) in April 2015 with the 9th year now starting September 2016.

The Junior Academy (County team) is in full flow and will continue the programme up to the end of the inter county games in March and April. (Six centres, central county where possible)

For all information regarding centres, locations and dates please go to Kent player pathway.

The County Junior Programme is supported by the EH, Kent Sports Development Unit and was kindly sponsored by Standard Chartered in 2011 to 2013. The County Coaches and team kit is supplied by Xstream clothing from Medway. If you would like to (or your company) sponsor the Junior programme please do get in contact with Richard Young.

After County Hockey there is the regional performance centre (JRPC). After that our next level identified players compete at the Futures Cup.
