Coaches and Referees

Coaching Underwater Hockey

The British Octopush Association coaching scheme will link in with the BOA Awards Scheme. The structure of the coaching scheme is shown on the BOA Coaching Directive issued to Tim and Libby Dale (see attached) who established a working group to prepare and deliver the courses.

Club Coaching Courses

The first course is the 'Club Coach' and was piloted in early 2009 and has now been successfully run many times. The remaining Underwater Hockey coaching courses will include a 'Senior Club Coach' and a 'Leisure Instructor' to enable Underwater Hockey to be taught in leisure centres and schools. Any queries (or anyone wishing to contribute) should email
