Wellington Hockey provide In Season Development (ISDP) opportunities for players in the U11, U13 & U15 age groups. As part of the ISDP, WHA require coaches to assist in the delivery of these programmes. This is a great development opportunity for coaches who are interested in progressing their coaching skills and knowledge. Coaches or trainers are supported by way of content provided and worked with around delivery of the content ensuring the players have a positive and supportive development experience.
WHA run a development programme for players in Year 5&6, based at NHS, Fraser Park, Elsdon & Kapiti. Each HUB has a lead coach while other coaches and trainers deliver the programme content. There are also festival days held at Kapiti and Fraser Park where teams are created and games are played. Coaches are supported during the festival days with WHA Coach Developers leading coach support. A great opportunity for developing coaches in a relaxed and supportive environment.
U13 & U15 Representative Programme
As part of the ISDP, WHA have players that have weekly trainings before being placed into teams to attend regional festival days in the Term 3 school holidays. Coaches are supported in the weekly delivery of trainings with provided content and programme overview, before the opportunity to design and reflect on training sessions. Like the U11 HUB, coaches will be supported by WHA Coach Developers throughout the programme and festivals.
