After consulting with all the stakeholders we have put together a plan that will add to the existing YTE qualification process that starts in January 2017.
We are aiming to create a culture of greater understanding of the standard and training requirements of players who wish to aspire to play for the National Team.
This is an outline of the changes that will be made to the U21 2018 World championship qualification process which starts in January 2017.
The intention is to let everybody know the process now so they can decide if they want to take part and more importantly understand where they need to be within their own game to be competitive at future World events.
Our aim is to make the qualification process less about playing every tournament and more about choosing your tournaments wisely and allowing time for quality training and practice.
This year will be most challenging because we are asking you to make the biggest step up but the sooner we start the sooner we will achieve more.
The first requirement will be to set an average standard that players need to achieve in 2017/18 season to be considered for selection into the WYC 2018 teams.
