Great Britain Advanced Coach Programme

ACP Graphic Smaller
GB Hockey has evolved their coaching offer based on significant research and feedback from coaches. This has led to a move away from a hierarchical qualifications based system to one that is player centred and learning led. 

From our research we know that the formal learning “courses” are not the preferred method of learning for many and that coaches feel that these traditional approaches have limited impact on their coaching practice. Our coaches have told us that they like to learn through communities of practice, peer interaction, mentoring, observation (informal learning) and environment specific workshops.

Therefore we have developed this amazing two year coach development programme that will move coaches’ delivery from good to great and will support them to inspire more, better and happier players in their chosen coaching environment.
