Continental Development Officers
The new network of Continental Development Officers (CDOs) began operations in Brussels, June 2002.
The CDOs have been appointed to work on the structural development of hockey in their continent. This professional group of people will give comprehensive advice and render services regarding hockey development to the National Hockey Associations in their continent and they will contribute to their Continental Federation’s development programmes.
The first focus of the CDOs will be analysing the hockey development potential and needs in the countries and to assist NHAs in development planning.
The 5 CDOs form a Global Development Co-ordination Network, chaired by FIH Development Manager Gabriëlle van Doorn.
The CDOs will work in close consultation with the FIH as well as with their Continental Hockey Federation, aiming at consistent implementation of the global FIH policy and the related CHF hockey development policy.
