 The Indian junior women's Core Group has returned to SAI Centre, Bengaluru after a successful tour of Chile.  The 37-member Junior Core Group has resumed their preparations for the all-important junior women's Asia Cup and FIH Junior World Cup (Women) scheduled for December this year.

The group reported in SAI Centre, Bengaluru on February 10 and have completed the mandatory quarantine period. Wonink, Coach, Indian Junior Women's Hockey Team said, "Having completed the mandatory quarantine period, we are now geared up to begin our preparations for the Junior Women's Asia Cup. I believe all the players are well-rested and are feeling fresh mentally and physically.

There were plenty of positives from the Chile tour and we need to continue to push in the right direction in the months ahead."
