Field Hockey Canada, in collaboration with Field Hockey Ontario, Coaches Association of Ontario and the Coaching Association of Canada, will be hosting a Competition Development course at Appleby College in Oakville, Ontario March 11-13, 2016.
This course will be held in conjunction with the Ontario Field Hockey Coaching Conference, a conference designed for club coaches at all levels across the province.
Speakers for the conference and Competition Development will include master facilitator and Field Hockey Olympian, Sharon Creelman, Sport Psychology specialist and researcher, Dr. Shaunna Taylor, Sport Science Specialist from the Canadian Sport Institute – Ontario, Rob Rupf, as well as numerous Ontario-based field hockey experts in the areas of planning, program and technical development (Ann Doggett, Amy Agulay, Louis Mendonca).
Coaches will be in attendance from Alberta, Ontario and the Maritimes.
“This is the first Competition Development and Provincial coaching course amalgamation of its kind,” says Dr. Taylor. “We look forward to building future partnerships as the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) begins delivery across Canada in the 2016-17 season.”
Also taking place this upcoming weekend (March 11-13th) are a full suite of NCCP coaching seminars hosted by Field Hockey British Columbia at Burnaby Lake West – for more information about these courses, visit Field Hockey BC.
Further information, including a seminar recap and plans for future courses will be posted at fieldhockey.ca when information becomes available.
