This message has been received from Phil Thomas with the dates for the boys JAC assessment days. The Girls have yet to be confirmed.
“Hi All, the coaches have spoken!!
The U16/15 groups will work off the dates outlined below with all players attending the sessions.
As competition approaches the group will be reduced to a competition group.
Rob Leighton (U16) and Tom Smith (U15) are young enthusiastic Lead Coaches with past experience of JAC Coaching/Competition and JRPC preparation, they feel confident that all players will enjoy and benefit from what they have planned.

We are very fortunate to have these Coaches on board plus the Assistant Coaches who are making up the WY Coaching Team.
I hope the players will all enjoy and benefit from the experience and many will go onto bigger and better things.
The current weather situation is leading to rearranged Club League Fixtures, advice from England Hockey is that JAC activity should take priority over Club fixtures so make sure your Club Selectors/Coaches are aware of your JAC commitments.
Finally, if you have not received and completed a JAC Registration Form (ask your coaches for a copy) and complete and take with you to the first Development Session.
Can I ask parents to pay for all sessions in advance by cheque so that Coach do not have to deal with money. Any refunds necessary will be dealt with at the end of the JAC programme.
Cheques made payable to West Yorkshire Hockey Development Group for £22.50
Thank you for your cooperation
Good Luck and success to all.
