A High Performance Coaching Course or Final Coaching Course has to take place in conjunction with major events (at least Continental Cup, Champions’ Trophy, World Cup, or Olympic Games or World Cup Qualifier). A Development Coaching Course or Final Coaching Course should be held in conjunction with an international event. (This can also be other international events such as international invitation events and high level Under 18 tournaments etc.)

Conductors do not only give a recommendation but also a detailed assessment of each participant in FIH Coaching Courses.

Conductors of FIH Final Coaching Courses also give, apart from their possible recommendations for appointments to FIH Coach (HP or D) and/or FIH Coach Grade 1 (HP or D), a detailed assessment of participants in an FIH Final Coaching Course.

Recommendations and assessments are made known in writing, signed by the Chairperson of the FIH Development and Coaching Committee and sent to all participants in FIH Coaching Courses and FIH Final Coaching Courses. In that letter it is stated that participants may give a copy of that letter to their National Association, but that the FIH regarding this as personal information, does not send a copy to the National Association.

Those who wish to participate in an FIH Coaching Course first have to apply for participation by means of an application form made available by the FIH. FIH Coaching Courses are announced well in advance with all relevant details being sent to all National Hockey Associations by letter, including the invitation to apply and application forms. FIH Development and Coaching Committee selects the participants from the applications and sends either an invitation to participate with a registration form, or a message that the applicant has not been accepted. This goes to the applicant through the National Hockey Association. Should the applicant be unsuccessful the reasons for this will be given (e.g. too many applications, insufficient qualifications or other).

Announcements of FIH Final Coaching Courses are timely sent with all relevant details, directly to those who earned a recommendation in a previous FIH Coaching Course (within a 4 year cycle), as well as to all NHAs. The procedure thereafter is, as with FIH Coaching Courses.

Accepted candidates for an FIH Final Coaching Course have to contact the course conductors in advance to agree a subject for their written paper and for their verbal presentation during the course.

After an FIH Coaching Course and an FIH Final Coaching Course, all participants receive a letter regarding their assessment by the course conductors from the FIH.

Every two years, the Coaching Group of the Development and Coaching Committee of the FIH will review the list of Accredited FIH Coaches in order to ensure that Coaches on the list are still active members within the FIH Coaching system.

All FIH Accredited Coaches should agree to serve the FIH at least once every four years by conducting an FIH Accredited Coaching Course, FIH Non-Accredited Coaching Event or an Olympic Solidarity Coaching Course.
