The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has collaborated with selected higher education institutions to open a nationwide registration process for the trials of hockey (men and women). The trials are being held under the Talent Hunt Youth Sports League initiative.
Both male and female young players aged between 15-25 years old are eligible to register for participation in the sport. The scrutiny of documents, including CNIC/Form-B and Domicile of young players, will be carried out. However, the registered players can appear for trials at their nearest locations within their respective province.
Successful players from the trials will be able to compete in the provincial and national leagues. These players will be given coaching and mentorship from the trial phase till the national league. This will give them many opportunities for growth, including representing Pakistan at national and international levels.
HEC will be holding trials at 25 different locations throughout the country, in order to give young players a chance to show their skills in Hockey. These trials will be held in locations including the federal capital, Azad Jammu & Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan, Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan, and Sindh.
The Prime Minister’s Youth Program is encouraging all young and enthusiastic hockey players to register on their website. Eligible players will also be able to register on the spot.
