South Africa will be heading to Bhubaneswar for the 12th FIH Junior World Cup from the 24 November to the 5 December. It will be the African’s 6th appearance at the tournament looking to improve on the 10th place obtained in 2016 under Garreth Ewing.

South Africa will be in Group A alongside 2016 runners up and current Olympic Champions Belgium, ever present Malaysia and Chile, also making their 6th appearance. The top two teams from the pool will progress to the Quarter-Final round.

Its been a tough build up for coach Sihle Ntuli and his charges as the covid pandemic constantly threw curve balls, hurdles and obstacles. The team however have behaved in a manner that has made the country proud and will be having a superb following as they take on the Indian conditions and the best Junior Hockey players in the world.

The Squad that will represent South Africa at the tournament is today announced with Guy Morgan, Peter Jarvis and Jared Campbell continuing their leadership roles within the team. The team is filled with players that performed exceptionally well at the recently completed USSA and many of the young gentlemen showed in the CTM Showdown how impactful they can be.

There is a blend of exciting talent and organised ability in the squad. The team will undoubtedly be inspired by the performances of the senior men at the Olympic Games and will be bringing the same South African spirit to their campaign.
