COINCIDING WITH THE CENTENARY YEAR, HOCKEY ENTERS THE CAR OF SANT CUGAT
The High Performance Center (CAR) of Sant Cugat has, for the first time in its history, given scholarships to hockey players.
The initiative, promoted by the Catalan Hockey Federation, is part of the project to open the elite training space to other sports, among which is hockey.
Each year there will be eight different players. The first eight scholarship players this season were born in 2009 and will combine studies with training, following a mixed model. The day will include elite physical preparation in the scholarships' routine.
The participants, who started the course last Wednesday, September 6, study from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.; from 11.30 a.m. to 1.30 p.m. they will perfect their hockey technique and continue with training from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., which is when they finish their day.
The members of this first promotion are Pol Balart, Àlex Carrera, Marta Farré, Mar Guinovart, Hugo Palma, Victor Salvans, Berta Sola and Aina Vidal.
