New Delhi: Hockey India has decided to conduct the Hockey India Coaching Education Pathway Level 1 Coaching Course-2021 in New Delhi and Bhubaneswar.
The national body of hockey on Sunday said the course would be of 4-day duration. The course will run in New Delhi from January 29 to February 1 and in Bhubaneswar from February 3 to 6.
The candidates will be selected through a first-cum-first-serve basis and the minimum criteria is that they must have passed the Hockey India Level ‘Basic’ Coaching Course. Preference would be given to the athletes/coaches who have participated in Olympic Games/Senior World Cup/Junior World Cup/Continental Events, sanctioned by AHF/FIH. They can enrol through an open forum link, according to a news agency.
Since the launch of Hockey India Coaching Education Pathway in 2019, over 700 coaches from across India have benefitted from the programme.
“While the various courses conducted online last year were effective, the candidates of this course will have an opportunity to learn even more in an on-ground scenario,” said Hockey India president Gyanendro Ningombam.
