Following on from the success of the previous one, Ulster Hockey have offered to run another YOUNG LEADERS AWARD PROGRAMME for North Down on 9 September at Comber Leisure Centre for all our 15-18 year old boys and girls.
The Award is a 5-hour long course that introduces young people, aged between 15 and 18, to volunteering in their hockey club. The aim of the programme is to enjoy all aspects of the sport of hockey rather than concentrating on playing only.
The programme comprises of 2 modules:
- Umpiring (2.5 hours)
- Coaching and Team Management (2.5 hours)
The Young Hockey Leaders Award helps to pass on skills, top tips and most importantly confidence so that Young Leaders can get back out to their clubs in order to put their new found knowledge to use! In order to complete the award, each leader must attend the 2 modules and then go back to their club to complete 5 hours of contact time.
The Club will cover the cost of the course for all those wishing to attend. We need a minimum of 12.
We had 12 Young Leaders who had attended this course before and found it very beneficial and lots of fun !
