Congratulations to Removes pupil Milly Mills (C), who has been selected from the Under 15 East England Hockey team to take part in the England Hockey High Performance Assessment Camp in early October.
Her achievement is made all the more amazing as she’s one of only eight goalkeepers to be selected in the country.
A High Performance Assessment Camp (HiPAC) is a residential three-day camp which forms part of Junior Regional Performance Centre (JRPC) Tier 2 activity. From 2009/10, annual HiPACs will be organised for players in the U15 and U17 age group, who are selected for squads from JRPC Tier 1 activity. These squads are called the Saxon Tigers, the Pennine Pumas, the Wessex Leopards and the Mercia Lynx. Milly will be playing for the Saxon Tigers.
The HiPAC aims to give players in the U15 and U17 age groups first-hand experience of an international training camp environment, in preparation for potential future involvement in a National Age Group Squad (NAGS).
