FIH COACH

The Accreditation of FIH Coaches is based on the principle that a FIH Coach is a 'Coach’s Coach'. They may often be active primarily in the coaching of teams and players, but the appointment by the FIH to FIH Coach, in one of the five categories of accreditation, means that they are recognised in the FIH accreditation system, as a coach with good abilities to conduct coaching courses (teaching and developing the group and to act as a coach or consultant for other coaches). This recognition is based on an assessment by the FIH Course Conductors of a candidate’s knowledge of hockey, hockey coaching and other relevant aspects and their ability to transfer knowledge and experience to others and to stimulate the interaction of people.

FIH Coach – High Performance

This category will include those individuals who have successfully completed an FIH Final Coaching Course – High Performance and have demonstrated very good up-to-date knowledge of hockey coaching. They are experienced high performance coaches and are able to convey their knowledge effectively to persons with less hockey knowledge and coaching experience. This makes them good conductors of those Olympic Solidarity Coaching Courses in developing hockey countries in which participants already have hockey experience and the topics are more in the field of high performance rather than development coaching.
