The England Hockey Quicksticks Leadership Course is a FREE course that provides resources to train young leaders in the delivery of Quicksticks. The course can be delivered in two ways, either as a practical course or online.
It is recommended that young leaders are aged 13 years or older, however the tutor can use their judgement on each candidates suitability.
Please click here for a step by step guide on how to plan and deliver your leadership course.
Please click here to download the candidate registration form.
The content and training only provides a basic overview and introduction to each area, and therefore young leaders should only ever operate under the supervision of a qualified teacher or coach.
The interactive table below is designed to signpost you to the various content, training and resources which are available to support the delivery of a Quicksticks leadership course. The aim is very much to provide the materials and content in a flexible way, so that the course can be structured and delivered to suit the needs of the group and the blocks of time available.
