What is the Young Hockey Leaders Award?
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.
Currently the course is divided into 2 sections:
- Online regional workshop – 1 hour
- Regional Practical pitch session – 4 hours
We will continue to add dates and venues across Ireland in 2020, please keep your eyes peeled for this.
For any clubs who wish to hold a YHLA please get in touch with email@example.com
How does my club take part?
Under normal circumstances there are two ways your club can take part:
- Organise a workshop at your club grounds: You need a minimum of 12 Young Leaders and Hockey Ireland will provide the tutor (classroom and pitch time required).
- Send your Youth Leaders to a centrally run course in your province. See below for upcoming courses. To book a place, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
