U15 REP development programme
With the REP U15 development programme we would like to offer players a continuous development pathway. We also would like to create a lifelong love for hockey. NEW in 2017: we will work with three U15 teams to give more (younger) players the opportunity to continue their development pathway. Names of the 3 teams:

·         Premier team

·         Championship team

·         Future team

The programme is open for players who are for players who are turning 14 or 15 this year. Also, players who are turning 13 and are in year 9 need to be registering for this programme.
