Academy Series 2019 – Glasgow Thunder v Edinburgh Lightning (girls)
Scottish Hockey’s performance team has announced the dates and times for the inaugural Academy Series. The series is part of ongoing enhancements to the talent pathway as confirmed earlier in the year.
Unlike its older inter-city siblings the Super Series and Development Series, where all games are played at the Glasgow National Hockey Centre, the Academy Series will be staged at different venues around the country over the weekend of competition from Friday 22nd until Friday 24th November.
The Academy Series is designed to provide another layer of competition between inter-district and international competition for the best 50-60 young hockey athletes eighteen and under in both genders. This will give the best youth hockey players in Scotland the opportunity to stake a claim for a place in our national under 18 programmes and under 21 programmes, who both have European A Division Competitions next summer.
