Hockey India on Saturday named the 33-member Core probables list for the upcoming Senior Women National Camp to begin on 25 February 2019 at the Sports Authority of India, Bengaluru Campus.

The players will report to Chief Coach Sjoerd Marijne for the National Camp that concludes on 31 March 2019.

The five-week long camp will see the players focus on fitness, ball-handling speed and strength apart from emphasis on staying consistent in their performance.

The team led by striker Rani did well in their recent tour of Spain where the Indian Team enjoyed one win (5-2), suffered one loss (2-3) and drew twice (1-1 and 2-2) against the home team who had won a Bronze Medal in 2018 Women’s World Cup.

India also impressed against 2018 Women’s World Cup runners-up Ireland with a draw (1-1) and a win (3-0) ending the tour on a high.

“Playing well against Ireland and Spain with short preparation gives the team a good boost. There is space to improve and keep aiming higher. It is important for the players to know how to remain consistent and show that every day in training and match-situation,” stated Sjoerd Marijne who is happy with the steady progress the Indian women’s team is making.

He further added that the camp gives them ample time to work on key areas ahead of their next tour in Malaysia.

“Our focus will be on improving fitness and also ball-handling speed. We have a long camp and this is perfect as it gives more time for us to work on these two key areas. In our next tour we play Malaysia and in those matches, we will come across situations where we will have less space to score and our challenge will be to be effective in such situations,” he opined.
