The Level 1 Online Course is designed to prepare you for the Level 1 Instructional Clinic and for coaches who want to earn a full Level 1 Certification.
The Level 1 Online and Instructional Coaching Clinic program is specifically designed for individuals that already possess a basic knowledge and understanding of the game of field hockey. Individuals who are brand new to the sport are welcome to attend but may find it difficult as the course covers a broad range of topics in a short period of time. We recommend if you just started in your coaching journey that you take the Discover Field Hockey - Foundations Course which is currently being developed.
The Level 1 program consists of two parts, the online section that will prepare you for the in-person 4.5 hour Level 1 Instructional clinic.
