The Hockey Ireland Level 1 Coaching Course is the second step on the Hockey Ireland Coaching Pathway. Whilst the Hockey Ireland’s Fundamentals Coaching Course qualifies coaches as Assistant Coaches, the Level 1 is designed for people looking to lead group sessions. The course is delivered on the basis that attendees are coaching a range of age groups, from young children to adults. Play-Practice- Play is the common theme of the course as the vast majority of the coaches will deliver sessions in a game like environment using this key concept for Irish Hockey.
The Level 1 Coaching Course is two and a half days in duration. The first two days are pitch based practical sessions and the last day consists of the observed session. In order to pass the Level 1 Coaching Course, you must attend all contact days and successfully complete the observed session.
There are a number of requirements for coaches that wish to attend the Level 1 Coaching Course:
