The development of coaches has been identified as key to developing our players and is something the Club has identified as a priority for the coming years, so current and aspiring coaches will be encouraged and given opportunities to up skill supported by the Director of Hockey.
Rudi has previously held the role of Director of Hockey and Development Officer in other clubs and brings this experience to Avoca where we aim to enable all our members develop their skills no matter what level of hockey they are playing at.
