England Hockey Selects Caterham School Student for Sporting Excellence Programme

Published Friday 7th of February 2014 11:30:32 AM

Caterham School Lower Sixth student James Foggin has been selected for England Hockey's Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (AASE) programme as part of the new National Age Group Squad (NAGS) Academy.

The programme, which is led by the Performance Department at England Hockey in partnership with Loughborough College, is open to hockey players with talent and potential aged 16-17 years.

AASE is a Sports Performance Programme for talented young athletes which has been operating in other sports in England since 2004 and there are 25 Sports and 2500 athletes currently engaged with the AASE programme.

Success stories from the programme in other sports include Rebecca Adlington (Swimming), Tom Daley (Diving) and Jack Wilshere (Football).

The AASE programme reflects what an athlete should be doing to follow a practical based performance programme, by planning their activity, applying coaching and guidance and evaluating their performance.

Director of Sport at Caterham School, Rob Clarke said: 'This is excellent news for James who is already on the U17 High Performance Assessment Camp (HiPAC) programme, which is the last stage before U18 National Age Group Squad (NAGS) selection. Players selected for this programme by England Hockey have the approach, commitment, application, discipline and skill to perform at an elite level. James certainly fits those requirements.'
