U13 Representative Programme
As part of a holistic player development programme Wellington Hockey runs an U13 Representative programme which is based on the principles of Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD).
The programme has been designed to meet the age and stage of the athlete at U13 level.
It consists of the following elements;
Under 15 Development Programme: It is a requirement that anyone that wants to represent Wellington must register through the online registration portal and attend two, two hour sessions which are open to anyone.
Trials: Selection into trials will be based on the development programme. Trials will be completed over a couple of weekends and will extend to observations of school/club matches by selectors.
Wellington Representative Teams: Two teams for males and females are selected to attend tournaments against other associations.
The guiding principle of this programme is to develop athletes in an appropriate manner for their stage of development. The programme is an inclusive programme which provides opportunities for all players.
