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.
The course is 6 hours in duration and focuses on delivering basic hockey skills to beginners and learners. The course will also focus on the way children learn sports reinforcing the Hockey Ireland coaching ethos of ‘we hear we forget’, we see we understand, we do we learn’.
You must be 16 years of age of older to take part.
Places are limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis and will only be confirmed upon receipt of payment.
