Irish U16 & U18 Trial Squads


Irish U16 & U18 Trial Squads announced

Following last weekend's interpro's, Sarah Scott (U16 Head coach) and Gavin Groves (U18 Head coach), have announced their training squad.

Sarah Scott commenting “I really enjoyed watching the U16 matches at the Inter-provincials in Cork. It was evident from the talent on display that a lot of hard work had been put into preparing the teams for the tournament. I’m excited to engage, empower & educate this young group of female athletes. I am looking forward to see how they develop within the Irish JAG system as we build towards the six nations in July.”

Gavin Groves commenting "This is an exciting year for our group as we prepare for the Division A European championships in Kazan, Russia in July. After watching the Interpro tournament in Cork it is clear to see that is loads of talent in the country, it was a fantastic tournament and we witnessed some great hockey played over the weekend. We have selected a squad of 29 players from this weekend and we are really looking forward to getting started in October. We are really looking forward to getting to work with this very talented group of players"
