Aaron's England Team News

Aaron 9SRU

Aaron has been in training since May 2014 for a place in England’s Ice Hockey team.  This has consisted of attending fitness camps during school holidays, following a fitness and dietary programme and attending trials in Sheffield and Bradford.  This is all on top of his regular training three times a week. He also attends his team games at Nottingham and Sheffield.

After being selected Aaron has gone on to play in the under 14s Ice Hockey team during the Easter break in Zell am See in Austria.  They played teams from Austria, Finland, Eastern Europe, and a top league Canadian team.

During the competition they won three games including beating the Canadian team, Drew 1 game and lost one, which put them in the Bronze medal final against the local host’s.

A cracking final, with fantastic support by students and staff on a school ski-ing trip from Derbyshire saw England come back from 2 goals down to force a penalty shootout. Unfortunately as so often happens England lost on penalties, however, the trip was a fabulous experience making all the efforts described worthwhile,

 Aaron finished top points for the England 22 man squad.  Well done Aaron.
