Shropshire Hockey Development – Whitchurch (9th, 14th & 21st June)

Shropshire Hockey will be running Development Centre sessions in Whitchurch during June.

These are for children aged 9 to 14, and offer a great opportunity for young players to experience different coaching and improve their core skills, as well as being the first step in taking part in representative county hockey for Shropshire.

These sessions are for anyone who wants more hockey and some wider experience. We have had a good number of players representing Whitchurch in the county setup over recent years, and it would be great to see this continue and grow.

All the information for signing up is in the attachment
