UHS Hockey Coach Attended Course

Union High School’s hockey coach, Mr Alvin August, recently attended a South African Hockey Association (SAHA) Level 1 coaching course.

The course, hosted by the Western Province Hockey Union, was held in Worcester on Saturday, 5 October, and presented by experienced facilitator and coach, Mr Ian Naudé.

The course consisted of a theory and a practical component designed to assist coaches in the advancement of their players’ knowledge and ability in the 11-a-side game.

Mr August found the course – which provided information on, among other, coaching concepts, training session and programme design, advanced technical skills, technical fault analysis, set pieces and tactical concepts for 11-side hockey – extremely beneficial.
