This title forms part of a series of sports' coaching handbooks, published in association with the National Coaching Foundation and the sport's Governing Body. Each book is an introductory guide for coaches, written for those who are called upon to coach beginners be they parents, teachers or community leaders. John Law is one of hockey's leading coaches and in this guide he draws from his wealth of coaching experience to set out a successful structure for teaching the basics of the sport. He balances the fine tuning of individual abilities with an understanding of the group skills involved in the playing of the competitive team game. A wide selection of relevant practices are included along with general advice on the overall management of a hockey session. His commentary is supported by an abbreviated version of the rules of the game located at the back of the book for reference.
