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 YHLA introduces young people to all aspects of the sport including umpiring, coaching, volunteering, and team management. During the programme individuals will learn skills, top tips, and, most importantly, confidence so that Young Leaders can get back to their clubs in order to put their new-found knowledge to use!
As a result of the current Covid-19 restrictions, Hockey Ireland has decided to divide the delivery of YHLA into 2 parts:
- Online regional workshop – 1 hour
- Practical regional pitch session – 4 hours
In order to complete the award, each leader must attend the 2 aspects of the course and then go back to their club to complete 5 hours of contact time. The cost of the course is €20 per participant. To book onto the courses please follow the link below.
We will continue to add dates and venues across Ireland for August, please keep your eyes peeled for this.
For any clubs wishing to run a YHLA please contact your regional development officer.
