Five from Odisha selected for Hockey National Coaching Camp

Bhubaneswar: As many as five players from Odisha have secured berth in the 33-Member Core Probables for Indian Women’s National Hockey Coaching Camp scheduled to begin from tomorrow at the Sports Authority of India Campus in Bengaluru.

The players are Deep Grace Ekka, Sunita Lakra, Rashmita Minz, Lilima Minz and Namita Toppo.

The players will report to Chief Coach Sjoerd Marijne for the three-week Camp that concludes on September 22, following which the World No. 10 Indian team will travel to England for a 5-match bilateral series with the Great Britain team starting September 27.

“It was a good experience for the team at the Olympic Test Event in Tokyo, and now we look to focus on preparing for the FIH Olympic Qualifiers. We will use this upcoming National Coaching Camp to stay in the rhythm, and to maintain our levels going into the Qualifiers. We also have a Tour of England coming up, which will also help us because playing matches against a strong opposition is good for our rhythm, and also gives us the chance to see where we can improve,” said Chief Coach Sjoerd Marijne.
