ASSOCIATION NOMINATION/TRIAL LINKS
Teams are as per FIH rules. 18 players with 2 goalkeepers, or 16 players with 1 goalkeeper.
The Queensland U21 squad will be shortlisted from the list of players that have already been identified and invited to attend High Performance training sessions at the State Hockey Centre in early 2020. Notice of selection for the squad will be announced after the HQ Championship on the HQ website. The team will be finalised from this squad in the weeks following.
At the HQC, coaches will be there to talent ID any additional players that may be added to these lists. If there are player(s) from your Association who you think the HQ High Performance team should take a look at please send their name to High Performance Director Lee Bodimeade by April 17.
It is important to note that this process will take place for this year only! The High Performance Committee will be discussing the process of selection of the U21 squad and team for 2021 at their next meeting as national and international tournament commitments for this age group are also factors which need to be taken into account.
