The Men’s Asian Games Qualifiers (AGQ) will take place in Muscat, Oman from 9 to 17 March 2018.

Players attending these sessions should arrive at the ground sharp and bring along a white shirt and a dark blue shirt, mouth guard, shin guard and water bottle.
Upon reviewing players’ performances at these sessions, the Men’s National team coach may extend an invitation to certain players to continue training with the Men’s Senior Squad with a view to assessing them for selection for the AGQ squad.
The current Men’s Senior Squad training sessions are generally held every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evening from 7:30 pm to 10:00 pm at King's Park Hockey Ground. There are also additional ad hoc training sessions, when deemed appropriate.
