Field hockey : Culley leads Team Canada

Rossland’s Thea Culley will once again lead Field Hockey Canada’s Women’s National Team into competition in 2014 and into 2015.

Rossland’s Thea Culley will once again lead Field Hockey Canada’s Women’s National Team into competition in 2014 and into 2015.

Culley and 15 other athletes were considered ready for international competition and will look to help Canada succeed at major tournaments this year.

“The National Team has been refined and refocused ahead of our preparation for two key benchmark events in 2014: the Commonwealth Games in July and the World League series in September,” says Canadian Women’s National Team head coach Ian Rutledge.

“The squad is large enough to continue to build depth and maintain healthy competition for positions, while at the same time allowing us the much needed time to drill down into our team and individual performances.”

While players on the National Team squad will make up the majority of rosters for future competition, members of the Senior and Junior Development squads also will be considered based on their progress in training and competition, and for development opportunities.

A refined roster has also been named for a series of test matches to be played in the United Kingdom versus the England and Wales National Teams from Apr. 27 to May 7.

The roster for the team to compete at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland in July will be named in June.
