WWPIS are excited to announce the launch of a new partnership with Scottish Hockey.
The aim is to support parents, coaches and players involved in the performance programmes to build positive relationships, ensuring players gain the most from the experience both on and off the field.
To try and achieve this, WWPIS and Scottish Hockey will work together to deliver a number of specifically targeted and designed workshops and webinars across a number of key stakeholders.
All parents and coaches involved in the programme will also be given access to a customised WWPIS/Scottish Hockey platform which includes all of the exclusive WWPIS content featuring over 250 blogs, videos, podcasts and infographics.
Gordon MacLelland, CEO of Working with Parents in Sport, said: “I am extremely excited to be working alongside Scottish Hockey to help support them in creating the best possible environment for young players.
“Everyone has a role to play in this and we are looking forward to working with and learning from key stakeholders to ensure we create the most supportive programmes possible.”
Scottish Hockey Brave Academy Lead, Kelly Fillingham said “The team and I are thrilled to be working with Gordon and the WWPIS team, we are excited about the programme of workshops and support planned over the course of the year and look forward to working closely together to further develop our strategic direction.
Scottish Hockey have been working hard to develop our parent/guardian engagement for pathway athletes and we look forward to taking the next steps in this journey with Gordon. We are excited to see the engagement and conversation this partnership will generate and the support this will offer for our pathway players, parents, and guardians.
Gordon will be leading on a series of workshops for parents/ guardians while also working closely with our coaches and Scottish hockey staff to drive our strategic vision around parent/guardian & player engagement.”
