Mites and Mighty Mites return to 2024 Showcase

The 2024 Showcase Draft are delighted to announce the return of the Mites and Mighty Mites for our upcoming event in Sheffield on May 24.

The Mites and Mighty Mites have been a massive success in opening the Showcase weekends, with the thrills and spills of the U9s players who are starting out on their quest to be the stars of the future.

The England National Team Programme (ENTP) would like to provide an experience of the “Draft Showcase weekend” to players who are starting their career path as a hockey player. This means that this opportunity is aimed at players born in 2015 and younger, and spaces are limited to 48 out-skaters and eight goalies.

We are thrilled to be able to announce the support of England and Showcase coaches, who will be putting the stars of tomorrow through their paces in preparation for the games in the evening before the England vs Scotland U18s game.

In addition, there will also be an opportunity for the players to meet with the England U18s, and we are keen to see the Showcase players support and cheer on these young players just starting out in their hockey journey.

The U18s England vs Scotland fixture will be the curtain-raising game, signalling the start of Showcase Draft weekend event which is widely regarded as one of EIH’s pinnacle events of the season’s calendar.
