A Development Centre is the first stage of the Player Pathway and is open to anyone from age 11 wishing to develop their hockey. Players take part in a range of training sessions or camp-based activities to develop their skills and begin to stretch them beyond school and club hockey.
In Leicestershire we run our initial Development Centres as camps in early September. Players are then selected for the Academy Centre, or can continue to train at a Developemnt Centre where their progress is continually reviewed.
Year groups for the Player Pathway are based on your school year.
