Today the SA Hockey Association has great pleasure in announcing the South African U21 Invitational side:

 Kayla de Waal and Edith Molikoe both join the team after a fantastic tour with the SPAR South Africa Women’s Indoor side that drew with Poland away from home, while the likes of Mishka Ellis, Ammaarah Hendricks and Jean-Leigh du Toit have impressed at PHL as well.

For the U21’s selected in this invitational squad, the focus will be on impressing and staking a claim for a spot in the African Cup later this year and hopefully a view to qualifying for the next FIH Junior World Cup.
