PCE Courses

Field Hockey BC has developed the new Provincial Coach Education (PCE) Pathway to present opportunities within formal coach education that complement the National Coach Certification Program (NCCP) and align to the Long-Term Field Hockey Development framework (LTFHD). The Provincial Coach Education Pathway (PCE) is primarily targeted at voluntary club community coaches and places a greater emphasis on the technical and tactical building blocks for field hockey development. The PCE Pathway is also designed to recognize and mitigate the challenges of time and financial constraint that remain significant barriers to participation and investment in formal coach education.
