We love bringing you good news, especially on Fridays! As part of our #FridayFocus on all things Development and Education, we are delighted to announce a partnership with HOCKEYtoday.cc  that sees the EHF taking coach education to a new level.

The deal means that Coaches and Mentors on our Coaches for Europe and Top Coaches education programmes will have access to the vast coaching knowledge on the HOCKEYtoday.cc platform.

EHF’s Development and Education Manager, Tom Pedersen Smith was happy to make this announcement saying “We have a signed a really excellent partner in HOCKEYtoday.cc. They have an archive of coaching resources available from top trainers all over the world, in addition to the upcoming and future conferences that coaches and mentors on our programmes can now access for free. Sharing knowledge was the theme of the EHF’s General Assembly in 2017 and since then we have looked to develop meaningful partnerships to ensure that our Education Programmes have access to top resources. I have no doubt that this partnership will be a very fruitful one for both of us.”

Ernst Baart, Director Hockeytoday.cc at the launch of the partnership said “HOCKEYtoday.cc is delighted to partner up with the EHF. ‘We have the common goal to #sharetheknowledge! At HOCKEYtoday.cc we welcome every coach/trainer, from all countries and levels, eager to learn. We hope our online platform for hockey coaches will play a small part on their road to become better and improve hockey together.”

Bernardo Fernandes, Director, Self-pass,HOCKEYtoday.cc and EHF Educator, who was on hand to sign the agreement, added: “ I believe that bringing HOCKEYtoday.cc and the EHF together makes sense as both have the ultimate target of developing world-class hockey coaches in Europe.”
