Trojans Hockey Club is proud to be recognised as one of the first 20 Talent Centres to be accredited in 2022.
A Talent Centre club is a club that provides high quality early talent development environments (Talent Foundations). This provision is embedded within the club's junior programme.
Talent Centre accreditation is all about developing and recognising what a club can provide for youth and junior players, with a particular focus on those aged 12-15 years, who are showing potential and aspiration to progress their hockey. It isn't about a defined squad or players.
It is critical that all youth and junior environments provide safe, enjoyable and inspirational environments for all young hockey players. Clubs play a fundamental role as the bedrock for initiating a lifelong love of the game and provide strong development opportunities.
A Talent Centre club will offer a safe challenge and support for talented players and pro-actively prioritise its junior system to optimise the opportunities for further development.
