Youth Development Programme

It is the aim of the West District to continue to improve and maintain the quality of youth players within the District by providing both existing and previously unseen talent the opportunity to be viewed under tournament match conditions, in as controlled and safe environment as possible.  To this end we introduced the Youth Development League, designed to identify and develop such players.

The event is also designed to cater for the progression of youth umpires and technical officials and will provide a formal insight for all of the workings of Tournament Directors and associated officials in the running of an official eleven-a-side tournament under FIH Rules. 

The event will also allow for the training / mentoring and selection of coaches and managers for anyone interested in becoming involved in the West District coaching and management team.
