BEHC supporting Parents in Sport Week 2018: Watch L1s and M1s at College Meadow TODAY

2 months ago By Fenno Outen

One way for parents to support their children's hockey is to enable them to see "What Good Looks Like"

One of the ways England Hockey Coaching encourages the development of hockey skills is by seeing "What Good Looks Like". There is a perfect opportunity to see high standard hockey during Parents in Sport Week at College Meadow today, Saturday 6 October. BEHC's Ladies 1s and Mens 1s have consecutive home games at 12.30 and 2.00pm, featuring a selection of our Junior Coaches: Vicky Pitt (Girls U10 Lead Coach) and Sally Wallace (Girls U12 Coach) will appear for the Ladies 1s against Kings Alleyns, while Laxman Karan (Girls Head Coach) will turn out for the Mens 1s against West Hampstead.
It would be great to get a crowd in attendance and a chance for our juniors to see BEHC's star players in action.

Those who need even more of a hockey fix can stream (free, once you register) the EuroHockey League (Hockey's equivalent of football's Champions League). Round 1 games are running all weekend. Go to https://www.eurohockeytv.org to register.

The Child Protection in Sport Unit also recommends the following to best support your children:

  • support your child enthusiastically
  • encourage your child without expecting perfection
  • be a good role model – to children and other parents
  • promote fair play
  • acknowledge the efforts of all the children
  • encourage your child to play by the rules
  • support the coaches and officials (particularly young officials)
  • share challenges or criticisms (of officials, coaches or players) in a constructive way
  • encourage other spectators to be positive
  • challenge or report poor side-line behaviour
  • allow the coaches to coach
  • support and respect your child’s ambitions in sport
  • remember that this is your child’s sporting experience – not yours
  • celebrate and support your child as a whole person who needs a range of experiences, both inside and outside sport
