Teenager chosen among U15s elite
Bideford teenager Ellie Emo has been selected from 64 girls and 64 boys throughout the country for an England Hockey Camp.
The England Hockey High Performance Assessment Camp (HiPAC) is a residential three-day camp, this year held in Leeds on October 27-29, with players selected from the Junior Regional Performance Centres (JRPC).
The HiPAC aims to give the best 64 girls and 64 boys in the country in each of the U15 and U17 age groups first-hand experience of an international training camp environment, in preparation for potential future involvement in a national age group squad.
The players receive high level training from some of the country’s finest coaches and match play opportunities.
Although still only young, Ellie has the ability to go a long way in the sport and is now attending Millfield school in Somerset to further her hockey playing ambitions.
