What is the Camp?

WHA will host U12 Development Camps in the April and October School Holidays. These camps are aimed at players with a good basic skill set and understanding of the rules of hockey. The camp will have a high coach per player ratio. Participants will be training in small groups working on individual skill development. During the camp participants are coached on both basic skills and advanced technique.

Both camps are three days and have a ‘day camp’ and a ‘live-in’ option. Spaces for both camps are limited and based on a first come first serve principle.

In line with the Balance is Better and Keep up with the Play campaigns. WHA will not offer any U12 programs in term 1 and 4. In term 2 and 3 WHA will offer weekly ‘Back to Basics’ trainings as part of the U12 Development Program and in the April and October school holidays WHA will deliver U12 Development Camps.


In order to register for the WHA U12 Development Program players need to be born in 2009 or 2010.
