We are therefore running a series of coaching workshop courses at the end of February start of March that you may be interested in attending. Whether you are currently coaching across any of the sections at any level, a captain who would like to increase their knowledge or a parent or player interested in being more involved with coaching across the club then this is a great opportunity for you.
England Hockey are recommending that anyone interested in attending these courses, attend the Intro to Hockey as well as the associated workshops, although this is not a pre-requisite. Although there are common subjects covered across all workshops, the Intro to Hockey does cover the fundamentals in more detail.
All sessions are being ran remotely. We are proposing to have the club open and available on each of the nights for these sessions so that you can all come together and share your learning experiences and exchange ideas etc. Alternatively, if you are unable to make it to the club, you can still join remotely. If you are going to join us down at the club, you will need to bring your own laptop or tablet to connect to the course.
If you are interested in attending, please click on the appropriate link to book you place on the course. Once done, please can you also let me know as soon as possible as well as your appropriate section lead, Stephen Course, Sue Davies or Mark Plowright.
As a pre-requisite you will need to register on the Hockey Hub (https://hockeyhub.englandhockey.co.uk/) if you have not done so previously. Once you have registered, please see the below document for the links to book onto the appropriate courses. There should not be an upfront cost to attend any of these courses when registering. If you are asked to make a payment, please let me know. If you are willing to assist with coaching in the club within any of the sections then these courses will be free, otherwise the cost of the courses will be as shown below. The club will advise of payments due.
The courses are being run by England Hockey and those that we are offering are as follows:
Intro to Hockey – both sessions online
