IHA Level 1 Coaching Course

The Hockey Ireland Level 1 Coaching Course is the second step on the Hockey Ireland Coaching Pathway. Whilst the Hockey Ireland’s Fundamentals Coaching Course qualifies coaches as Assistant Coaches, the Level 1 is designed for people looking to lead group sessions. The course is delivered on the basis that attendees are coaching a range of age groups, from young children to adults. Play-Practice- Play is the common theme of the course as the vast majority of the coaches will deliver sessions in a game like environment using this key concept for Irish Hockey.

The Level 1 Coaching Course is two and a half days in duration. The first two days are pitch based practical sessions and the last day consists of the observed session. In order to pass the Level 1 Coaching Course, you must attend all contact days and successfully complete the observed session. 

There are a number of requirements for coaches that wish to attend the Level 1 Coaching Course:

  • Coaches must be 18 years or older.
  • Coaches MUST have attend a Safeguarding Children and Young People in Sport Course in order to complete Level 1 Coaching Course.  If you have already attended a course, please provide proof of attendance.
  • Coaches must also have attended a Fundamentals of Coaching Hockey Course before attending a Level 1. Candidates may apply for an exemption to Ulster Hockey's Coach Education Manager, however applicants are required to have significant playing and coaching experience in order to qualify.


Please note: Safeguarding Children and Young People in Sport Course can be done as part of course.

Places are limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis and will only be confirmed upon receipt of payment.

Course dates: Sunday 4 March, Sunday 11 March and Sunday 18 March.
