ENGLAND HOCKEY – COACHING PATHWAY

The new England / GB Hockey Coaching Pathway information was launched on 31 March 2015.  The new philosophy is based on the ‘The Golden Thread’ which includes the following principles:

  • Fun
  • Looks like the game
  • Stretching
  • Decision Rich
  • Lots of touches
  • Questioning coaching style

Additionally, there is a strong emphasis on ‘technical shaping’ and skills development in a game-based context.  TBBHC strongly supports this approach as a means of up-skilling our young players.

For more background on the changes go to GB Coaching Principles and EH Single System – Talent Development or find out more by taking a look at this short video:
