New women’s Junior Development Squad named

Women’s Junior Development Squad roster refreshed following completion of National Championships


Canada’s Women’s National Program has updated its Junior Development Squad (JDS) after the completion of the 2016 Field Hockey Under-16 and Under-18 National Championships.

The updated list of athletes will focus on the upcoming four-year junior cycle which culminates with the Junior World Cup in 2020.

“I thought the level of competition (at the Nationals) was impressive,” says Women’s Junior National Team Head Coach Steph Andrews. “The level of development of the year since the last Nationals was good. I think the talent pool is definitely growing.”

Many members of the previous Junior Development Squad competed in the recent National Championships and a handful – including Margaret Pham, Hannah Eborall, and Jaslan Stirling – took part in the previous World Cup cycle, which came to an end for Canada this year at the Junior Women’s Pan American Championship in Trinidad and Tobago.

Other athletes have made their way onto the 30-woman roster for the first time.

The squad will convene in Vancouver, British Columbia for a Junior Development Camp in August.
