Hockey India on Saturday named a 33-member core group for the women’s national camp beginning in Bengaluru on Monday. The camp, to be conducted under the watchful eyes of chief coach Sjoerd Marijne, will conclude on November 30. “The core group continues to remain the same while we have brought in a few younger players who have shown good performances in the domestic events. We also have women who have done well at the Youth Olympic Games,” said Marijne.
“It is encouraging to have a strong pool of players who are pushing each other for a place in the team. During this camp, we will focus more on strength and conditioning, agility and emphasis on keeping up the fitness levels,” he added.
