Field Hockey Canada: Culley named to New-Zealand tour team

Rossland’s Thea Culley is one of 21 athletes selected to travel to New Zealand in January

Rossland’s Thea Culley is one of 21 athletes selected by the Canadian Women’s National Field Hockey Program to travel to New Zealand in January  for a tour, which includes a training camp and test matches.

The touring Women’s National Team consists of two goalkeepers, seven defenders, seven midfielders, and five forwards. The roster comprises of members from the 2015 Women’s National Team and Senior Development Squad, which were both named earlier in December.

The trip to New Zealand will be the Women’s National Team’s first major activity of 2015 and will serve as key preparation for World League 2, which takes place in March and is a step towards 2016 Olympic qualification.

Culley will be going as Vice-Captain of the team as the New Zealand training camp will take place from Jan. 19-30.

The camp will be followed by three friendly matches, and three official test matches against the New Zealand National Team, which is ranked fourth in the world.
