Qualifications

Fundamentals of Coaching Hockey Course for Volunteers

This course is designed to be an introduction to hockey coaching for volunteers and parents. Whilst still paying heed to the skills required to be taught to beginners the course will also look at the delivery and organisation of a coaching session. The course specifically looks at the coaching needs of those with a limited background in hockey who may also require additional coaching skills to impart their knowledge.

The Fundamentals course is the first course in the hockey coaching pathway and is one of the requirements for candidates wishing to progress to Level 1 and onwards.
