Please note the date for this one day course has now changed from Saturday 19th August to Sunday 20th August

  • Are you looking for a coaching refresher ahead of the new season ?

We've designed a special one day coaching masterclass for anyone involved in, or planning to be involved, in coaching hockey to your players.

We've designed our masterclass to complement the range of other coaching courses and resources available by bringing in Trinidad and Tobago based, FIH Academy Coach Educator, Anthony Marcano, to deliver a day that draws on the most up to date international coaching ideas and approaches to offer coaches something a little different.

Anthony has extensive experience of working with all levels of players and coaches within the game and has worked in a wide range of countries in the Pan American region. He has coached at international level right through to entry level young players and is passionate about making coaching fun for younger players (aged 5 upwards) to help build not just core skills but also a passion for the game.

Anthony also played internationally and coaches the Trinidad an Tobago Women's team and has been Men's assistant coach and under 21 coach.

The day will be mainly practical and pitch based with a small number of presentations. The day will provide a refresher (or introduction) to all on the coaching basics and will be packed full of opportunities to look at different ways to deliver fun, engaging and developmental coaching sessions.

Ideal for those who are already experienced at working with young players, or those players or parents looking to take their first steps into coaching.
