1.   West Masters Area Assessments

We are looking to run our annual West Area Masters assessments.  Please can you share this email with all your Club Masters Players, as they may wish to put their name forward for a West Masters Assessment.  There will be different dates for the men and women.

It couldn’t be easier -if you completed the form for the 2021/22 season we already have your details so you do not need to complete this again. If you are new – just click the link below and complete the online form and the West Masters Team will be in touch regarding further details and of age group assessments.  We are mindful of England Hockey trials and EH competitions for Masters so we hope there will not be a clash.
