Alan Brahmst announced as Canadian Men's Coach
20 Nov 2008 23:36
 

As part of Field Hockey Canada’s (FHC) strategic roadmap and in consideration of achieving the near term objective of winning the Pan American Cup in March, 2008, FHC has appointed Alan Brahmst (Toronto, Ontario) as the interim coach for the Men's National Team. Alan will bring with him a proven staff with tremendous experience and varied expertise to continue the team's significant progress, which had been engineered and led by Louis Mendonca during the past 2 years.

'I feel confident in our capacities to further develop the tactical and technical capabilities necessary to continue our rise in world rankings. The coaching staff has begun to collaborate on a number of opportunities to introduce leading game strategies and has implemented new and innovative practice components. We have full confidence in our abilities to design and execute a successful tournament strategy in Santiago'. Alan further stated that 'the progress in our player development has paid dividends and with limited retirements since the Olympics, we have a strong pool of players from which to build a dangerous team'.

Alan Brahmst has been an assistant to Louis Mendonca since 2007 and was most recently part of the coaching staff at the Beijing Olympics with the responsibility to develop the tournament's tactical plan. With a 15-year career with the national team and 178 internationals, Alan was an integral part of the Canadian men’s team that ranked as high as 8th during the 90s.

Alan's appointment is in line with Field Hockey Canada's commitment to an innovative 'Made in Canada' approach for developing the sport by leveraging and building on the existing expertise of our Canadian resources.
