Leadership Award

school leadership
The England Hockey Leadership Award aims to provide a suite of leadership content and training for leaders aged 13 years or older and is split into two awards covering leadership within the games of Quicksticks and In2Hockey.

Course Structure
Each Award covers the following:

  • Introduction to leadership
  • Overview of the game
  • Delivering
  • Umpiring
  • Organising a festival
  • Managing a team (Bolt-on module)
Costs/Resources
Each Award is delivered via a course of online videos with supporting downloads which are available for FREE via the Hockey Hub which you can access here. It is suggested that the resource/curriculum book and delivery cards are purchased to support the practical elements. These are available via Youth Sport Direct and you can find them here.

Who can deliver the course?
Leadership courses can be delivered by teachers, coaches or anyone with good hockey knowledge. Deliverers need to familiarise themselves with the course and follow the suggested course guidance for each Award. If you do not have a deliverer comfortable or familiar with Quicksticks or In2Hockey please contact your relationship Manager - you can find their details here - who will be able to suggest someone. Please note an external deliverer may charge.

Please note - the content and training only provides a basic overview and introduction to each area and therefore young leaders should only ever operate under the supervision of a qualified teacher or coach.
