IHA to host High Performance course / Railway Union multi-sport camp

* The IHA will run a High Performance Coaching Course on July 10 and 11 in conjunction with the Men’s FIH Champions Challenge II with coaching presentations by top national coaches along with task based learning using the international match play.

This course will be structured in a similar fashion to FIH High Performance Courses to allow candidates to develop towards high performance level. The objectives are to provide an interactive workshop and learning opportunities for coaches working at provincial, national or senior club level (premier league). It will also form part of the Level 3 assessment process.

The course will be facilitated by David Passmore (HP Director) and Mick McKinnon (formerly Coach Education Officer of Irish Hockey) with presentations by national coaches Gene Muller and Paul Revington and other guest coaches from national teams playing at the tournament.

The cost is €60/£50 except from those registered on the Level 3. Places are limited to 22 for the full course. For more information, contact Vivienne on

* Railway Union will host two multi-sport camps for boys and girls aged 6-12 over the next fortnight with kids taking part in hockey, tennis, soccer, tag rugby, cricket, bowls and some 'surprise' sports.

The camp has two one-week programmes commencing on June 22 and June 29. The fee is €90 per child and the camps run Monday to Friday from 10am to 2pm. For more information, contact
