Talent Development Framework for coaches

TDF Logo Smaller
Great Britain Hockey - in partnership with England Hockey, Hockey Wales and Scottish Hockey, EIS and UK Sport - is delighted to provide you with exclusive details/access to the Talent Development Framework (TDF). 

The TDF includes and evolves significant work to date on the ‘how’ of coaching and provides a common understanding and application of the ‘what’.

The framework is designed to support the delivery of optimal player development experiences, from early talent development to sub senior context, by delivering bespoke curricula, making best practice common practice and informing the development of future generations of players.
 


To guide how the sport, practitioners and coaches develop this next generation of hockey players, both on and off the pitch, Great Britain Hockey have developed the Talent Development Framework to:

  • Provide a common language for the development of players through the talent pathway across Great Britain
  • Allow for a shared understanding to guide player development
  • Empower coaches to become the architects of learning environments, and 
  • Offer a reference point for decision-making in the design of coaching practices, training sessions, and development environments
To bring to life Great Britain Hockey’s Talent Development mission statement of “strategically delivering World leading development experiences”, the aim of GB Hockey’s TDF is:

To allow best practice to become common practice, from early talent development to sub-senior context across GB.

Ed Barney Performance Director said: "It is fantastic that we have a Great Britain wide framework for developing and supporting medal winning Olympians of the future. 

"With a clear aim ‘to allow best practice to become common practice’ the Talent Development Framework provides a guide as to the experiences and environments developing players require to flourish and progress through the talent pathway across Great Britain.  

"The roadshows will provide a great opportunity for coaches to get under the skin of the Talent Development Framework and I encourage coaches coaching talented players to attend.’
