HOCKEY: Youngsters Hayden Pease and Charli-Rose Adams have been selected in the Queensland under-15 girls and boys teams respectively.

It is a superb promotion for the pair because they had just arrived from Perth after playing in the Under-13 Australian National Championships.

Hayden played in the Cutters team which finished sixth while Charli-Rose's Embers team was eighth.

Fellow Gladstone young guns Dylan Rose and Ryley Bobart also played in Perth for the Sabres and Cutters respectively.

Dylan's team finished in fourth place.

Hockey Queensland regional development officer for Gladstone Jordyn Wilson says it's a great recognition regarding Hayden's and Charli-Rose's selections.

"The Under-13 Nationals, from a Hockey Queensland perspective, is about developing our young athletes to equip them with the skills to move forward with Queensland teams in the future,” Wilson said.

"It is our goal to have all Queensland teams on the same page to ensure that when our athletes reach the under-18 and under-21 level, they will already have a solid foundation of the Hockey Queensland game plan.:

The talented youngsters will take part in the Queensland under-15 trials in February.

From these trials, two under-15 male and female state teams will be selected from the current squads

These teams will then compete at the 2017 Under-15 Australian Championships from April 5-13 next year.

The Under 13 National Championships were held in conjunction with the Australian Hockey League which gives the junior athletes an opportunity to attend, watch and interact with current, former and future Australian players. The QLD Under 13's had the privilege of being addressed by current Kookaburra players Mark Knowles and Jamie Dwyer.
