Developing Intermediate and High-Level Players

posted in: Coaching, Development | 0

UPDATE: As of May 14, the event planned for June 8 event has been cancelled. Current plans are to try again towards the beginning of the 2013/14 season.

The SKA is hoping to help develop its “next generation” of high level players… the sort of players that could compete at the very highest level within Scotland, and even give the national squad a good run for their money. For a little background on the basic idea, please take a look at this forum. Acheiving such a goal will clearly need a long-term development plan, but even long-term projects have to start somewhere. What is being proposed at the moment is basically a first step towards the formation of a regional or “out-of-club” competitive training programme that could be run in parallel with the regular SKL club-league next season. And here’s what that first step will involve:

The SKA will be holding a combined, nationwide training session that is open to all intermediate to high level players on Saturday, June 8th, 2013. The event will take place at Grove Academy in Dundee (Claypotts Road, Broughty Ferry, DD5 1AB), from 1pm to 4pm. The head coaches will be Clive Minshull and Gavin Legg, with additional members of the coaching team yet to be confirmed. There will be a charge of £5 per player to go towards hiring the hall, and the rest of the expense will be covered by the SKA.
Anyone interested in taking part (either as a player or a coach) should contact the SKA’s Development Officer, Nigel Cooper (email: by Frday, April 26.
