Hockey Hub will check for some of these criteria when you are booking, and if you do not meet the requirements, you can choose to appeal if you believe you have valid evidence and experience. You do this by clicking on the three horizontal dots to the right of the booking you have made, and select "Challenge prerequisites". This will send your challenge to the Great Britain Coaching team and they will usually respond within 48 hours.
