Loughborough, and play out of Nottingham, very possible.

There wouldn't be much point though really, it would only help the GB U20's with WJC preparation. Their development wouldn't be helped anymore than playing for a senior team since they play plenty of games and are on the ice often.

If development is the key you have to target younger players, a U18 development program wouldn't really work, they'd have nobody to play against and the players won't want to leave school or college, and where would the money for it come from.
