Advanced Skills Program

Canterbury Hockey is excited to continue the 'Advanced Skills Program' in 2018, giving young athletes the opportunity to up skill leading into representative trials or further develop for their respective clubs or school teams. 

The Advanced Skills Program (ASP) caters for Under 18 and Under 15 athletes who want to work alongside players in their age group to develop key skills and concepts which selectors and coaches will be looking for during our representative trials.

The programs are developed by our representative coaches, and delivered by some of our current NZ, NHL and U21 players and representative coaches.

Acceptance into the program does not rely on you trialing for a representative team though. Any athlete who fits the age requirement and has played a minimum of one full season of hockey is invited to sign up and make the most of this developmental opportunity.
