SINGLE SYSTEM UPDATE
Under England Hockey’s Single System the old “county” boundaries for organising youth hockey no
longer exist. For the 2009/10 season youth hockey training for players who excel in school and club
teams will take place at Junior Development Centres(JDCs). Following an initial assessment session this
training will run from September to December. On the 10th January 2010 players who have attended the
JDCs will be invited to an assessment day where they will be selected for a Junior Academy Centre(JAC).
The JACs are the equivalent of the old County teams. The training at the JACs will run from January to
March. During March there will be a number of Regionally hosted tournaments for all JACs, with only
the U17 winners of each region moving to a National JAC tournament. It is envisaged that the optimum
number of players at any one JDC or JAC will be 30.


Following the JAC tournaments in March some players will be selected to attend an assessment day in
May for the Manchester Pumas Junior Regional Performance Centre. This is the equivalent to what was
known as North West of England Hockey. Those 30 at each age and gender who are selected will train
between June and September for a Tier 1 Tournament against the Leeds and Newcastle JRPCs. From
these 3 sides a squad will be chosen to represent the Pennine Pumas (roughly equivalent to the old North
of England teams) in the Futures Cup(U16/18) or at HiPAC training events(U15/17). The National Age
Group teams will be selected from the Futures Cup squads. All of this information is explained in much
more detail on the England Hockey website, under the Single System heading.

What this means for players who would have traditionally competed to play for Cheshire teams in either
boys or girls events in the past is explained below.

Players born in 1997 will compete as U 13s during the 2009/10 season.

Players born in 1996 will compete as U 14s during the 2009/10 season.

Players born in 1995 will compete as U 15s during the 2009/10 season.

Players born in 1994 will compete as U 16s during the 2009/10 season.

Players born in 1993 will compete as U 17s during the 2009/10 season.

Three Junior Hockey Associations will be hosting JDCs and an associated JAC in the rough geographical
area covering Wirral, Cheshire & Greater Manchester. Unfortunately hockey boundaries do not match up
to geographical or political boundaries, which can lead to confusion. 3 JACs will replace the teams which
used to play for Wirral and Cheshire teams and included players who lived in Greater Manchester. The 3
JACs will now be know as ;

West Cheshire & Wirral JAC

East Cheshire JAC

Greater Manchester JAC

These are the titles of the three JACs, although for clarity later in this document I have referred to a JAC
by the actual venue where the JAC will be hosted for the coming 2009/10 season.

A school or club can nominate players to any of the JDCs which feed into these 3 JACs. It does not
matter where you were born or where you play hockey; there is no criteria to say which JDC/JAC you
must play for. The choice of training venue is purely a parental one based on where you wish to take your
child. The idea from England Hockey was that there should be more JDCs than the old county sides so
more players had access to more quality coaching than under the previous system. There should be, in
theory, a JDC within 30 minutes drive of any potential player. Eventually each JAC will have at least 2
JDCs running at each age and gender; unfortunately as the new system rolls out not all the JDCs will be
operational at every age and gender in all parts of the country. Depending on numbers some JDCs and
JACs may be combined to create a viable group size.

Information on all JDCs and JACs for both boys and girls can be found by visiting the Cheshire Hockey
Association website, which is listed on the front of this booklet. All contact details are contained there.

The Cheshire Schools & Youth Hockey Association will be providing coaching during 2009/10 for the
following ages and genders at the venues and times listed below. The first date for each age and gender
group will be an assessment session;

Any players who have represented their “county” at any level during 2008/09 will also receive a separate
invitation to trial at one of the JDCs for 2009/10. It would be a great help if all schools and clubs with
players who they believe would benefit from further coaching next year could pass on these details and
nomination forms to the players. All nominated players will be invited for assessment at the JDC and
those selected will be invited to attend the remaining JDC training sessions, at which point payment will
be required to cover the remaining sessions. All players will be expected to attend in appropriate playing
kit ; no player will be allowed to participate unless they have, and wear, shin pads and gum shields. Full
consent forms will be sent to parents once nomination forms have been received by the secretary.

All assessment/coaching sessions at both JDC and JAC venues organised by CSYHA will be charged at
£2.50 per hour.

Any further details can be found on the Cheshire or England Hockey websites or by contacting the
Secretary of CSYHA direct at;

andrewlear@tiscali.co.uk

Information regarding JDCs/JACs in Greater Manchester can be found by contacting David Hardern at;

david.highfield@ntlworld.com



Information regarding JDCs/JACs in West Cheshire & Wirral can be found by contacting Claire Sumner
at ;

clairesumner@fsmail.net or

cs@sumner1.orangehome.net



As with all voluntary organisation we would be grateful of any further involvement from Level 1 or 2
coaches who wish to extend their coaching experience, or from parents who would like to take on the role
of team managers. Please contact the appropriate person from the list above. Although some of the
nomination forms have return by dates, we will always consider players who miss the deadline provided
that communication is received with enough time prior to the assessment sessions to ensure that we have
adequate staffing in place and all consent forms are completed.



Yours in hockey
