Statement - Coaching Independently

From 1st September 2012, we recommend that no coach except those licensed at UKCC Level 2, or above, should coach independently

So what will this mean to clubs;
If your club and junior sessions are covered and manned by a Level 2 or above coach nothing changes- your helpers and level 1 Coaches can still operate under the supervision of the Level 2 coach

If you do not have a Level 2 coach present then you will need to alter the content of the day to make sure that youngsters and club players do not miss out on their session.
England Hockey will be producing further documentation to clarify the activity that can be covered in lieu of a Level 2 coach. All information posted as a download on the England Hockey web site under Coaching Independently.

If you or your club coaches need to up skill to a Level 2 award please contact your regional office to identify the next course in your area, or check the England Hockey website for further information.
