Senior Men Team


Scottish Hockey, together with England Hockey and Hockey Wales, have launched the Coaching Strategy for Great Britain 2015 - 2020.


The VISION is to create coaches who inspire, more, better and happier players.


The Objectives are to:


  1. To embed both a constraint led and games based approach
  2. Have an optimal supply of highly skilled coaches servicing the Talent Pathway across Great Britain
  3. Establish 1-1 contact with all active coaches
  4. Coaches to develop a culture of continuous self improvement
  5. Coaching is servicing and responsive to the needs of the sport



Coaches that inspire more, better and happier players

Coaches and coaching continues to be a cornerstone of Hockey.  Be it introducing someone to the game for the first time, working with a club side or engaging with the performance environment across Great Britain, the coach is a critical factor in determining the quality of a player's experience.

As a result, coaches will have a huge influence on whether children, young people and adults playing the game will take up, stay and progress within the sport.  If we are going to achieve our sports objectives across Great Britain, we need the best coaches possible, who feel valued, supported and rewarded for their contribution to the sport.

In leading the culture, GB Hockey and the Home Nations will demonstrate its leadership by developing a coaching system that will enhance the standards of coaching and move to develop expert coaches of children, participation, talent and performance.
