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:
- Looks like the game
- 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.
