Men's Hockey to report for Nat'l camp ahead of 18th Asian Games

Men's Hockey to report for Nat'l camp ahead of 18th Asian Games

New Delhi, July 31 (UNI) Ahead of 18th Asian Games at Jakarta-Palembang beginning from August 18, 25-member Core Group of Indian Men's Hockey Team which includes 18-member squad for the quadrennial event as well as standby players will report for the preparatory National Camp on August 1 at the Sports Authority of India (SAI), Bengaluru Campus.

India are grouped in Pool A along with South Korea, Japan, Sri Lanka, Hong Kong China and Indonesia.

"This break was essential because now the players will report with a fresh mind and fresh legs for the final preparatory camp before heading for the most important Asian Games where we want to seal the Olympic Qualification by winning Gold. In the camp, we will continue working on all aspects of the game with specific focus on converting opportunities in the striking circle. We will work on the short comings noticed during the New Zealand matches," Chief Coach Harendra Singh said.

After a hectic 21 days in camp where the National Campers played back-to-back matches with Bangladesh, South Korea and New Zealand as part of their preparations for the upcoming tournament, the Core Group of players were given a much-needed break to recover and return fresh for the camp which concludes on August 11. "We will be starting high-intensity training after a gap of almost one week. The rest was much-needed after a hectic and busy schedule where the players played high-tempo matches against Bangladesh, South Korea and New Zealand," opined Coach Harendra Singh.

The Chief Coach is confident of his team's prospects at the quadrennial event which will be a stepping stone towards the season's grand finale at the Odisha Hockey Men's World Cup Bhubaneswar 2018 starting in November. "We are confident the team will take to the training sessions with high energy and they are aware that a successful Asian Games will be the right stepping stone for the season's most-awaited Odisha Hockey Men's World Cup Bhubaneswar 2018," said he.
