The England National Team Programme’s Selection Camp for U13, U14 & U15 Teams for 2017/18 will be held over the week-end 19-21 August 2017.

We are proposing to run a 3 day camp, with three age groups each with 44 players made-up of 4 NM, 16 Defence and 24 Forwards.

The programme for 2017/18 will follow largely in line with the programme for 2016/17 although the emphasis will be on Player Development and not Team Dynamics.

There are many details still to be sorted-out and no further announcments will be made until after the 2017 Conference Tournament at the end of May.

Based on the last selection camp, participants can expect:

1. Camp fee to be in the order of £250 per player.
2. The camp will not be a residential camp so all arrangements for accommodation will need to be made by parents.
3. The camp will start at 6:00am for U13’s on Saturday 19th August. NOTE: We are considering holding a welcome meeting on Friday 18th August starting around 7pm – this will be confirmed by 30th June.
4. Meals, snacks and drinks will be provided to all participants on the 3 days using the ENTP “Menu”.
5. The Camp will consist of both on ice and off ice testing
6. The purpose of the camp is to Select Players for inclusion within the ENTP Development Team at U13, U14 and U15.
7. The teams will be selected in early 2018.
8. Players and Parents will need to sign the ENTP Code of Conduct and any breaches of the CoC may result in expulsion from the programme.
9. The Camp is not a “hockey school” and participants need to be aware that they are attending the camp on trial for selection to the England Programme.
10. There will be no preferential treatments or arrangements for any player who has previously been selected for any England Team.
