Hockey Victoria is offering scholarships to promote women in coaching and umpiring. HV is looking to develop the skills and confidence of 10 female coaches aged 16-30 and 10 female umpires aged 14-20 by putting them through several development sessions.
The umpire scholarship holders in 2012 attended professional development sessions with elite umpires and also officiated at the junior country championships and junior state championships, receiving one-on-one feedback from coaches.
The coaching scholarship holders were given the chance to work with leading junior sides in the lead-up to major tournaments while also attending VIS squad training sessions.
