Norbert Nederlof, Coach Development Manager for Belgian Hockey Federation and EHF Education Committee – Working group Coaches,  led the 5th Coaches Webinar of 2014 when he presented “Messages from the 2014 World Cup” this past Monday, September 29th.

Norbert focused on defensive messages and covered basic defensive tactics such as:

• 1 v 1 defensive skills and responsibilities
• Defending the Hotline
• Defending behind the ball
• Triangle defence

Video clips of the Rabobank Hockey World Cup Women’s Final were used to illustrate each point. 24 Coaches from all over Europe took part in the webinar (TCP and C4E)

The European Hockey Federation wishes to thank Norbert for sharing his knowledge and offering his time to prepare and deliver the webinar. The next  webinar will take place October 20th, when Stefan Kermas from Deutscher Hockey-Bund will present “Building Up Play”.
