Online workshops for Indian hockey coaches, technical officials

The Asian Hockey Federation (AHF) will organise a set of online workshops throughout this month for Hockey India (HI) coaches and technical officials, following up on the previous series held in July and August. A group of 15-30 coaches and technical Officials will be attending the four AHF Online Education Workshops, HI said in a statement.

The workshops will be free of cost for the participating candidates and will be held over three to four hour-long sessions. The AHF will also organise another set of online education workshops for all Asian hockey-playing nations in September. HI has nominated a maximum of six candidates for each of these education workshops.

Candidates will receive a participation certificate at the end of the workshops that will help them in future FIH AHF Course Selection.

“The AHF Online Education Workshops has been fantastic for the growth of our Technical Officials and Coaches,” said HI president Gyanendro Ningombam. “The AHF has delved into the nitty-gritty of officiating and coaching and our technical officials and coaches have utilised the opportunity to improve their knowledge of their respective fields through the AHF Online Education Workshops. We hope to continue working with AHF to improve all aspects of hockey in Asia.”
