The CCAS, together with UAA, Hockey NSW and the Central Coast Hockey Association have developed an elite junior development program including on field and off field components, with a major emphasis on individual skill development and game sense.
The purpose of the hockey program is to:
- Provide an environment for the athletes to develop
- Give access to quality services and programs as they progress through the Hockey pathways
- Prepare athletes for the Hockey season ahead due to this being an ‘offseason’ program.
- Provide a coach education program for Regional Academy coaches, with the support of Hockey NSW Regional Coaching Coordinator (RCC) Network
The CCAS will select a squad of male and female hockey players, who are of the highest standard regardless of position. Selectors will focus on the individual skills of athletes rather than a teams performance. A selection panel of CCAS coaches and independent coaches will review each applicant.
The CCAS decision regarding athlete selection is based on objective and subjective measures and the CCAS holds final responsibility for the selection of athlete’s into this development program.
The Central Coast Academy of Sport UAA Hockey program is designed to up-skill athletes and assist them in progressing to higher representation in the sport. The program operates during the months of October to April, athletes will progress and be assessed against the FTEM Model of athlete development; Foundation, Talent, Elite and Mastery.
The aim of this inaugural program is to upskill regional umpires and assist their progression up the umpire pathway. The CCAS hockey umpire program provides support for talent umpires to access quality education and development opportunities delivered by professional and specialised service providers. This program is supported and endorsed by Hockey NSW.
