The EHF Coaching Committee was able to meet in full for the first time since the COVID Pandemic.
The committee was pleased to be joined by new members Nathan Kipp (NED), Shirley McCay (IRL) and Marco Grossi (ITA).
Beginning with a virtual welcome from committee Chair Inez Cooper (EHF Vice President) the committee reflected on the success of recent programmes and looked ahead to what is to come.
Focus then turned to the EHF coaching workforce and what should be done to support them while appreciating the different needs of each programme.
After lunch, the group looked to examine the European Coaching Qualifications Framework project that has been undertaken by Nathan Kipp (NED) as a part of the EHF Institute Erasmus+ project.
The final breakout discussion of the day was focused on the assessment of coaches on EHF programmes and how best to create a concurrent approach despite the varying content and learning style of Coaches for Europe and the Top Coaches Programme.
Altogether the committee was pleased with the work conducted and was thankful for the opportunity to discuss coaching with a group from 8 diverse hockey nations.
The EHF Coaching Committee will meet again in September 2022.
