Introduction, HL Coaches Manual (North London Nationals Hockey)




The Operating Procedures and the Rules and Regulations have been adopted to provide all House League players with an enjoyable and meaningful hockey and learning experience.  Parents are requested to enhance the efforts of North London Sports Association and its volunteers by:

  1. Attending as many games as possible.  Your children are making an effort to win your respect for them and your presence provides reinforcement;
  2. Instilling a positive attitude and outlook towards the game of hockey and being supportive of your child and his or her team-mates, regardless of success;
  3. Being supportive of your child’s coaches and other team staff members.  Remember that Coaches, Trainers, Managers and other volunteers do not pretend to be perfect but, they are trying their best to ensure that your child has an enjoyable learning experience.  Their desire and commitment to provide the best possible instruction to the players, is enhanced by attendance at seminars, clinics and workshops.  At the North London Sports Association, we support the efforts, motivation and desires of our coaches.  We take every effort to put our players in the best situation to develop their skills and experience the joy of the game through our selected coaches.  Player and parental distractions to the team will not be tolerated.
