SUCCESSFUL TEAMS, PODIUM ATHLETES

Our aim is to produce consistently successful Scotland teams that inspire the nation and transform the sport. Our international performance programme is designed to systematically deliver successful Scotland and podium athletes. The ultimate aim is to deliver the medal winning Scottish athletes of the future at both Commonwealth and Olympic Games level.

Scotland regularly competes in international hockey competitions at all levels of the sport, including at the Commonwealth Games, UK School Games, European competitions, and FIH tournaments. These competitions see Scottish athletes go toe-to-toe with the very best hockey players across the world.

Scotland has teams at Senior Men; Senior Women; U21 Men, U21 Women; U18 Men; U18 Women; U16 Men; and U16 Women international levels.

Each team is made up of the very best hockey players Scotland has to offer at these age levels.

In Scotland we have a performance pathway to develop players from a young age towards senior international level. This pathway supports the objective to produce successful teams and podium athletes. Our Performance Pathway shows the progression from district squads towards senior international level and representing Great Britain.

Scottish Hockey is also a partner association of Great Britain Hockey with England Hockey Board and Welsh Hockey Union.
