VENUE: World class facilities at Repton School, Derbyshire
CURRENT PLAYING LEVEL: UK athletes should either already be playing at Performance Centre level or be accepted into an England Hockey Talent Academy from September 2022. National Age Group players are also welcome. International players are welcome to contact us for guidance.
The 3-Day US Showcase is for female players aged between 14-17 years old, in UK school Years 9 -13 or international equivalent, who are interested in going to University and playing hockey in the US.
MT13 have teamed up withRepton Hockey Club to develop and deliver a new US Showcase. We believe this is the first of its kind, a 3-day residential camp attracting the very best players from the UK and Europe, who want to further their education and hockey in the US.
In the last 4 years, Matt Taylor (US Showcase Directors) have been involved in the development of numerous players who have played NCAA hockey (the top division in the US).
This unique residential camp gives US coaches and players more time to interact (in accordance with NCAA rules), allowing the US coaches to build a more in-depth profile of individual athletes, and for players to understand in more detail the application process and experience of playing and studying in the US.
US coaches will be able to assess players under conditioned exercises, match play and physical testing. There will also be specific goalkeeper sessions and a post-grad players section.
At the end of the Showcase, each player will have access to a high quality showreel with footage from the residential combined with footage they have provided. These showreels will also be available to the US coaches.
