Hockey India launches groundbreaking courses for emerging coaches and match officials

Hockey India has recently launched comprehensive courses as part of its expanded focus on the education and development of emerging coaches and match officials. Recognizing the crucial role of coaches in shaping the future of Indian hockey, Hockey India is taking steps to raise coaching standards and involve more individuals in coaching.

The initiative includes various zonal level courses for technical officials and umpires. Aspiring candidates interested in participating in the Hockey India Match Officials Education & Development Plan Zonal level courses are encouraged to reach out to their respective member units and request nominations through the Hockey India Member Unit Portal.

Throughout the courses, match officials will receive necessary guidance and support to expedite their development. Eligible candidates will then have the opportunity to officiate at the Hockey India sanctioned Sub Junior & Junior Level Zonal National Championships. Additionally, candidates will be eligible to attend FIH Academy, AHF & Hockey India Umpires & Technical Officials Courses/workshops.

Hockey India President Dilip Tirkey praised the initiative, stating, “The standard of hockey in India will grow if we focus on the development of the sport at the grassroots level. This involves providing youngsters with the best coaches and conducting matches at the same standards as international matches.”

“To equip coaches, technical officials, and umpires for this grassroots endeavor, we are introducing multiple courses. These courses will help elevate the standards of the sport while providing opportunities for candidates to grow in their careers.”, he added.

Moreover, Hockey India is organizing HI Technical Delegate & Umpires Manager courses in New Delhi. These courses are scheduled to be held from March 27th to March 30th, 2024, at the prestigious Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium in New Delhi.

The comprehensive program aims to deepen understanding of the FIH Rules and Regulations governing their roles. It also seeks to enhance knowledge for effectively guiding upcoming Technical Officials and Umpires, as well as evaluating and analyzing their performances in a unified manner.
