New Delhi:

The International Hockey Federation (FIH) has started a camp for senior hockey coaches of 60 countries in an effort to improve the coaching standards. Asia's only FIH Master coach, Pakistan's Mohammed Ikram demonstrated the shortcomings of the traditional approach and showed how the modern tech-savvy approach can better the overall standard of the game in Asia. Nearly 60 countries and about 3,000 coaches will benefit from this international camp. The present camp in Delhi has six Asian countries and 30 coaches participating and most of them believe that the training will further improve their skills. The six-day camp advises coaches to follow the basics and train their students accordingly. Even though the camp is a brief one, the tips if properly used by the coaches would go a long way in benefiting hockey in the country.
