Why should you attend?

The best junior High Performance in South Africa with a 10 year proven track record of medals! Only the best players in the Province are invited to train together with our elite group of coaches.

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.
