High Performance Hockey

SportWays Elite High Performance Hockey 2020 / 2021 is officially launched (invitation only)! 

 

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. 

  • 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.
