At present there are a number of differing options which are not consistent in either depth or breath of offering across the Region.

The transition to the new Area will allow for clear junior leagues and competitions across the Area aligned with offerings from England Hockey and the sub-Areas.

The Transition Working Group (TWG) will look at and devise leagues and/or competitions frameworks for all junior hockey from U8 upwards as well as indoor.

The TWG will also consider the impact of Badgers,Vixen and development Hockey and suggest the best practical way of  interaction with the junior specific activity.

Whilst School’s hockey is not part of this group remit they will be aware of potential cross-overs and impact and also with any Talent Development activity.

TWG lead Tim Lorimer (MRHA Ltd Director).
