Field Hockey Canada Coaching Pathway

Community Sport Stream: coaches in the community sport stream typically become involved on a voluntary (and often short-term) basis because their children participate in a sport. They tend to work with participants of all ages who are new to the sport.

Competition Stream: coaches in the competition stream usually have previous coaching experience or are former athletes in the sport. They tend to work with athletes over the long term to improve performance, often in preparation for provincial, national, and international competitions. This stream is broken into two levels, competition introduction and competition development.

Field Hockey Canada, in association with the Coaches of Canada, has developed a coaching model and training program to prepare coaches of all levels to effectively lead athletes in their field hockey developments.
