New Delhi, 04 August 2020: After the successful completion of the AHF Online Education Workshops exclusively for the Hockey India Coaches and Technical Officials last month, the Asian Hockey Federation (AHF) will organize another set of workshops in the month of August. A group of 15-35 (approximately) Coaches and Technical Officials will be attending a total of five AHF Online Education Workshops.
Aimed at providing technical expertise and knowledge on various aspects of officiating and managing international matches and tournaments, these online education workshops will be conducted free of cost for participating candidates online through Microsoft Teams application. Each workshop will consist of a three to four hours’ session including a break. For Technical Officials these workshops will mainly focus on code of conduct: Protest & Hearing & for the Coaches emphasis will be on coaching in 5-a-side hockey, physical fitness demands, match strategies and the role of Goalkeepers.
Hockey India has requested each of the eight Hockey India Member Units which take part in 5-a-side hockey tournaments in India to nominate two Coaches (one female and one male) for the online workshop on coaching in 5-a-side hockey. They will attend the workshop along with the group of nominated Hockey India Coaches.
Speaking on the participation of the Coaches and Technical Officials in the AHF Online Education Workshops Mr. Gyanendro Ningombam, Officiating President, Hockey India said, “We are delighted that the Asian Hockey Federation (AHF) will conduct another set of workshops for our Technical Officials and Coaches. I am confident that the workshops will definitely help our officials and coaches improve tremendously and in the process, we will have an opportunity to grow the game of hockey even further in our country. The AHF has always taken steps to ensure that the officials are growing and evolving every day and I would like to thank them for their efforts.”
Meanwhile, Dato Tayyab Ikram, Chief Executive, Asian Hockey Federation (AHF) and Chairman FIH Development and Education Committee also commented on the occasion, “It has been an absolute pleasure to be working with Hockey India Technical Officials and Coaches. They have attended the online workshops with great interest and enthusiasm and I have no doubt that they will become much better through another set of online workshops. Hockey India has always ensured that hockey is moving forward in whichever situation and their dedication is admirable.”
Along with the online workshops exclusively for Hockey India, the AHF will organize online education workshops for all Asian hockey-playing nations in August. Hockey India has nominated a maximum of six candidates for each of these education workshops.
