Successful Teams, Podium Athletes

The Under-14 Inter-District events are where the Scotland stars of the future are discovered.

Each of Scottish Hockey’s districts enter boys’ and girls’ teams at the U14 age-level to the Inter-Districts. The events are observed by Scotland’s performance coaches looking for players to develop in the Scottish Hockey Brave Academy for the future.

Young players are selected and are developed on the performance pathway working towards full senior international level. It is stage one of developing winning teams and podium athletes.

Last season’s U14 Inter-District events were held on 20 May 2023 (Girls) and 21 May (Boys) at Peffermill, Edinburgh. The plans for 2023-24 will be shared once agreed with Districts.

Until 2019, Scottish Hockey also ran annual Under-16 and Under-18 Inter District tournaments.  These have been replaced by a year-round programme of matches between District teams as part of the Talent Pathway, including District Festivals in June 2023.
