The EIHA England Development program consists of 3 Squads and has been instigated for the purpose of instigating a structure for athlete development through the EIHA into the Ice Hockey UK, Great Britain Team structure.
The introduction of the squad system is detailed within the EDP and is designed to create competition and development at each squad level within junior hockey.
The intention of this program in time will be to expand the numbers of players eligible to have an opportunity at this level with our players being equipped with the required skills and experience to ensure that the IHUK elite athlete program has the require pool of talent to select from.
This the EIHA hope will then allow our elite athletes to progress through the international ranks moving hockey within the country forward and strengthen our own association.
