Congratulations to Izzie Howell (U6LES) who was recently selected for the Senior Wales Hockey Squad.
The senior squad convened this weekend as they jetted off to Gran Canaria on a week long warm weather training camp as they begin their preparations for the upcoming Commonwealth Games in Australia.
In preparation for the contrasting environment they will endure during the Australian games in April, the Gran Canaria training camp allows the squad an opportunity to adjust to the demands of warmer climates.
The squad will also participate in five matches against Scotland during their training camp, mixing an ideal balance of game and training time.
This is a hugely commendable achievement by Izzie, her inclusion in a squad consisting of 22 of the country’s most talented Hockey players is very impressive indeed.
We wish her all the very best and look forward to hearing about the camp when she returns!
