What is a Junior Regional Performance Centre?

A Junior Regional Performance Centre (JRPC) is a training centre for the Under 15, 16, 17 and 18 age groups, open to anyone who has successfully come through assessment from a Junior Academy Centre (the county representative level).  

What happens at a JRPC?

JRPCs provide six days of training over the summer, where players will receive high level coaching on the core skills of hockey from JRPC coaches, with additional input from England Hockey’s Centrally Contracted Coaches.  

Following the training sessions, a squad of players will be selected to play in the “Tier 1” JRPC tournament over two days, where the Bury St Edmunds JRPC team (Bury Tigers), play against the nearest JRPC centres (Tonbridge & Northwood).  

The combination of training and competition allows players to develop in a variety of situations and ensures that they are assessed in more than just the competition environment.
