U14 Boys / Girls District Squads
2013 West & South West U14 Squads in Action
2011 Youth Development League
Please note that due to a change made by Scottish Hockey Youth Competitions, there will be no U14 Mixed Inter District Tournament this season, the event has been replaced by a club only event.
The West District was unaware of this change, until entering teams for the competition.
There had been no clear notification of this change by Scottish Hockey other than a change in the Youth Competition Rules and indeed the event was only recently further advertised to draw attention as only 5 teams had entered the festival.
Despite the best efforts by the West and Midlands districts and the President of Scottish Hockey, the competitions have refused to allow entry of district teams into the event on the grounds of their assumption that selection would be entirely performance based.
We are sorry for any disappointment to the players but it is out with our control.
The West District have therefore decided to now focus on the provision of the 3 no. scheduled YDL session dates.
We will however continue to press for the U14 Mixed Inter District Festival to be reinstated for next season.
Please note that this notice is not intended as any form of critique towards Scottish Hockey or the youth competitions, it simply explains the reason why will be unable to enter into any such competition this year.
