Coaching in Norfolk


NHA views the learning and development of coaches in our county as essential to the future of our sport. After talking to lots of coaches to see how we could support them, Mary Cheesman, Lead Coach Norfolk Player Pathway, worked with England Hockey to set up an EH NHA Bespoke Coaching Programme which has been running since August 2019. 20+ coaches, ranging from those at the beginning of their coaching careers to the more experienced, have been meeting regularly at locally organised workshops led by EH Coach Educators to develop their practice. Motivational Climate, Session Design, Integrating Goalkeepers, Principles of Attack/Defence are some of the themes we have worked on. All participating coaches are involved in club coaching and many in the Norfolk Player Pathway so that what we are learning can be shared to support coach and, consequently, player development in our county.
When the programme is completed in May, it is intended that our coaching community continues to work together, sharing ideas and best practice supported by workshops throughout the season. All activities will be advertised on the website and details sent to clubs. Please get in touch if you want to know more and get involved.
