High Performance Hockey

SportWays Elite High Performance Hockey 2021 / 2022 is officially launched (by invitation only)! 

 

Congratulations to the WP Boys players and coaches who won the recent series vs Boland. 

 

Why should you attend SW Elite HPH?

The best junior High Performance in South Africa with an 11 year proven track record of medals! Only the best players in the Province are invited to train together with our elite group of coaches. 

  • U16A WP team - gold medal (2011 – 2015, 2017) and silver (2019) and bronze medal (2018)
  • U18A WP team – gold medal (’11,’13,’14,’17 and 2019) and bronze medal (2012, 2018)

FIVE of our HPH players have made the SA u21 team that went to the last junior FIH World Cup! And now due to the lengthy success of the program these players have also broken throught to the senior national team level too!

On average between 50% and 75% of the players making the WP provincial teams attend our HPH program by choice.

 

What is SportWays Elite High Performance Hockey?

HPH is a 4 year hockey development program-starting with u14/u15 players which gives them all the skills and grounding needed to develop into provincial players, preparing them for the next age group. The focus is on the key areas required for a high performance program:

1. Skills development (train specialist skills you aren't able to train in the team environment or during season)

2. Conditioning - hockey specific

 

It is the best players in the Province training with and against one another WITH the best coaches in the Province. This is not just another school level training. This is the best training you can get at elite age group level. 

 

Our coaching staff this year is exceptional and a team that has worked together for more than 5 years now.

Bryce West – Head coach of the u17 group (current WP Boys u18A head coach)

Devin Stanton – Director of the Elite High Performance program and assists both groups (former WP Boys u18A head coach and gold medal winner, current WPu18A Technical Analyst, national senior men’s team trainer, SA u16 boys trainer)

Jody Erasmus – Head Coach of the u15 group (current WP Boys u16A head coach)

Goalies will get a number of top local goalie coaches to work with them on a weekly basis.
