2020 U15/U13 Development Programmes
In the absence of National U15/U13 Representative tournaments in 2020, Canterbury Hockey is offering a number of U15 and U13 athletes the opportunity to participate in extension-based development experiences in the October school holidays. The objectives of these programmes are as follows:
- Provide athletes with an enjoyable and development-focused experience
- Develop and extend a targeted group of athletes
- Provide more athletes with the opportunity to participate in a representative/development based programme.
Canterbury U15 Development Programme

Year 9, 10 and 11 athletes under the age of 15 as at 1 January 2020 are eligible for this programme. It is expected that athletes registering for this programme will be playing for their school 1st/2nd XI and/or their club Platinum Div1 team.
Athletes are required to register themselves for this programme and must be available to attend all sessions. The programme will involve a combination of training and 11-aside games.

We are limiting the programme to 180 athletes due to space constraints, so self-registration does not guarantee all athletes a spot in the programme. We will contact all registrants once registrations close at 5pm on Friday 18 September.
Canterbury U13 Development Programme
Dates: Thursday 1 October, Friday 2 October, Saturday 3 October: approx. 9am - 4pm each day
Clubs/schools will nominate U13 athletes to take part in this programme. The programme includes a combination of training and game-based experiences culminating in a 7-aside festival event. Athletes must be available to attend all days of the camp.
There is a cost associated with the programme of approximately $150 per athlete.
2019 Representative Season
2019 was yet again another successful season for our representative teams and we are extremely proud to offer one of the best representative programmes in the country.
In our continuing drive to achieve and maintain excellence our representative coaches and managers are crucial to the performances of our teams.
The coach and manager appointment process for our NHL, Senior, and U18 teams' takes place from January to March.
Canterbury Hockey, along with High Performance Sport New Zealand (HPSNZ), want to ensure that players who are U18 and selected into our representative teams do not have an excess workload placed on them over the period of their representative campaign.
Due to the cancellation of ALL 2020 National Tournaments there are no representative trials scheduled.
