Summer Programme 2024

Our summer programme is back for 2024. The WHA U18/U15 Summer Programmes are a pre-season training block designed for players with capability and aspiration to represent Wellington. Players who don’t have the aspiration to represent Wellington, but still wish to develop can access that opportunity in other Wellington Hockey programmes. The expectation is that all Summer Programme participants will make themselves available for U18/U16 trials. As in the past, the Summer Programmes will also form an important part of the selection process for the 2024 intakes for the U16 EXTEND and U18 EXCEL Squads (players who want to apply for the Development Squads must be involved in the Summer Programmes).

  1. Players must be affiliated to Wellington through school or club

  2. Players must be at least Year 9 at Secondary School

  3. Players should register for their correct age group as per their age at the 1st of January 2024

  4. Players should have had representative experience in the past or display the potential to do so in the near future

Note: For those who sit outside of this, the WHA Explore Programme would be a more suitable and valuable development opportunity.

Note: We are encouraging and supportive of players participating in summer sports and will work around those other commitments to ensure individuals can manage both and can form an appropriate weekly training schedule. We are comfortable with compromising some of the hockey sessions and ask that any players with clashes communicate in advance. 

If you have any questions, please contact Kieran (one of the new Community Hockey Officers) and he will be able to help once the office reopens on Tuesday 9th January 2024.
