Who is This For?

Who is it for?

The ACP is for any active coach who is genuinely keen to advance their coaching for the benefit of their players and the sport. They must be committed to personal development, open to feedback, excited about learning and interested in applying the GB Coaching philosophy in their sessions.

The Advanced Coach Programme not only replaced the previous UKCC Level 3 but also goes beyond the bounds of the previous qualification. As such, you must have at least a Level 2, Sessional or Coach qualification to be eligible to participate.

Whilst there will be an emphasis on talent development, because of the modular format of the programme, coaches do not have to be working with players at any set level or in any particular environment.

By joining the programme, coaches will be agreeing to attend and engage in all of the central dates and also to complete the core workshops which will be delivered on a regional basis.

We are looking for coaches who are not only motivated to progress themselves, but also prepared to give something back to the sport and to support other coaches during and after the programme. This will ensure that each cohort will leave a legacy in their local hockey community.
