Coaches and Coaching continues to be a cornerstone of Hockey.  Be it introducing someone to the game for the first time, working with a club side or engaging with the performance environment across Great Britain, the coach is a critical factor in determining the quality of a player’s experience.

As a result, coaches will have a huge influence on whether children, young people and adults playing the game will take up, stay and progress within the sport.  If we are going to achieve our sports objectives across Great Britain, we need the best coaches possible, who feel valued, supported and rewarded for their contribution to the sport.

Please see a number of different areas of support and downloadable resources to help both clubs and coaches to inspire more, better and happier players
