BOOK HERE Young Hockey Leader course – North Dublin 2nd July- 7-8pm 3rd July – 3-7pm Sport Ireland Campus, Abbotstown

The Young Hockey Leaders Award is a 5-hour long course that introduces young people, aged between 14 and 18, to volunteering in their hockey club. The aim of the programme is to enjoy all aspects of the sport of hockey rather than concentrating on playing only.

The programme has previously comprised of 2 modules:

  • Umpiring (2.5 hours)
  • Coaching and Team Management (2.5 hours)

However, in 2020, as a result of the current Covid-19 restrictions, Hockey Ireland has decided to divide the delivery of YHLA into 2 parts:

  1. Online regional workshop – 1 hour
  2. Practical regional pitch session – 4 hours
The Young Hockey Leaders Award helps to pass on skills, top tips and most importantly confidence so that Young Leaders can get back out to their clubs in order to put their new found knowledge to use! In order to complete the award, each leader must attend the 2 modules and then go back to their club to complete 5 hours of contact time.  The cost of the course is €20 per participant.
