From 30th January to 3rd February the Top Coaches Programme took place at Club Junior in Barcelona.
With mentors Jules Halls, Bobby Crutchley, and lead mentor Michel Kinnen. The coaches covered a range of topics from developing a high-performance culture to identifying in-game strategies. Coaches also delivered their own presentations and outlined their personal coaching principles.
The group also had the honour of having topics delivered by special guests Marc Sanz and Xavi Trenchs. Furthermore, the group had a fantastic opportunity to sit down with Spanish National Team Head Coach Max Caldas to reflect on the recent FIH world cup.
A special thank you goes out to all of the staff at Club Junior for their hospitality and for helping to create an environment that allowed for such a positive learning environment.
Andrew Brogdon (SCO) said of the event: “I really enjoyed my week on the outskirts of Barcelona where whilst picking the brains of all the top hockey people on the course, learning from some fantastic guest speakers, and enjoying the facilities and hospitality of Club Junior it was also nice to see a little bit of winter sun. As always the week was full of learning, great company, and lots of things to go away and reflect about. I look to the final seminar in Germany this summer.”
