Last week was National Coaching Week, thank you to all the coaches that engaged with us as part of the week, from coaching cards to top tips on how best to utilise your pitch space and plenty more - check out our social channels for more!

We had such a great reaction to the week that we thought we would share one final bonus resource with you, a podcast between Scott McNeill (GB Coach Developer) and Danny Newcombe (Wales Assistant Coach) answering some of the questions that you put to us as part of the week. We hope you enjoy it!

The full 30 minute podcast and all the other resources from the week can be found under the Top Tips Section of Hockey Hub.
