Age 16-17 ADVANTAGE - MENS
To re-institute a training process that was started 10-11 years ago by ASPIRE with the belief that if athletes are given more opportunities to train at a high level with similar ‘aspiring’ athletes, then development will be enhanced. This allows athletes to become part of the ‘Next Generation’ of players who will move on to Provincial, Collenge and University Teams.
ASPIRE will recruit athletes believed to have the potential to benefit from this level of intense training. Invited athletes will include up to 10-12 athletes only. (Athletes will be asked to share positions if the correct mix of required athletes is not attained)
