In2Hockey Courses Overview

England Hockey has developed a range of In2Hockey training courses to help teachers and coaches feel confident to deliver the game

Here you can find an overview of each of the courses and they are available as either a practical course or an online course. Practical courses can be delivered by teachers, coaches or anyone with good hockey knowledge. Deliverers need to familiarise themselves with the course and follow the suggested course guidance. If you don't have a deliverer comfortable or familiar with In2Hockey please contact your Relationship Manager who will be able to suggest someone (please note an external deliverer may charge). 

Online courses offer more flexibility and can be completed at the candidates own pace, to fit in with their own schedule and commitments. All online courses are FREE and available through the Hockey Hub.
