Three junior members of Whitby Hockey Club have been successfully accepted on to the Junior Academy Centre for North Yorkshire Hockey.

Around 10 members from the junior section of the club were invited to attend four training sessions and an assessment day as part of the Junior Development Centre.

The three members were then invited to a final assessment day at Queen Margaret’s School at Escrick and they were all successfully selected.

Natasha Kent in the under 15s squad, Jasmine Kent in the under 12s squad and Kieran Storr in the boys’ under 13 squad.

All three will now attend a further five training sessions and it is hoped they will take part in a couple of tournaments representing North Yorkshire.

A proud Karen Sanderson, Junior Development Coach for Whitby Hockey Club, said: “It is a great achievement and I wish them luck on their hockey journey to the next level.”
