It is suggested that like perhaps kicking a ball like object around the most natural thing to do is to pick up a stick and hit a ball like object around! Stick and ball games have been around for centuries and recorded across the world in various forms but the modern variant of field hockey is reputed to have begun in 19th century England.
Field hockey is a very aerobic sport, so it promotes healthy weight, heart health and a good metabolism.
At West Midlands Sports Development we follow national governing body recommendations.
During planning for our courses our aim is to:
- Ensure a suitable coach to player ratio.
- Ensure additional adults are present whilst coaching sessions are undertaken.
- Ensure any volunteers that may support our resident coaches are aware of our strict coaching philosophy.
All our coaches are committed to the new 1st4Sport Level 3 Certificate Supporting the Delivery of Physical Education and School Sport.
