A senior school girl at King’s Ely has been included in a national hockey training camp.
Rebecca Daniel, 14, recently attended a high performance assessment hockey camp (HIPAC) in Leeds, where she represented the Saxon Tigers.
The three day residential camps are held annually for players in the under 15 and under 17 age group who have been selected from their regional squads.
These squads are called the Saxon Tigers, the Pennines Pumas, the Wessex Leopards and the Mercian Lynx.
The HIPAC aims to give players first-hand experience of an international training camp environment, in preparation for potential future involvement in national age group squads.
