Hello Alberta field hockey community,
With this e-mail I would like to briefly introduce myself: my name is Roel van Maastrigt, high performance coach from the Netherlands. I will take over the position of High Performance Coach from Peter Taylor on August 1st this year.
I have a vast background in high performance training and coaching programs. Over the last 10 years I have successfully worked for several hockey clubs in the Netherlands and was involved as a trainer/coach of the U14 and U16 national teams of the KNHB, the Dutch Hockey Association.
Outside of my time as the new FHA High Performance Coach I will be coaching the U of C Dinos. I will be teaming up with Field Hockey Canada during the year to continue our connection with the National Team Program. This will allow us to stay current with the National team’s latest philosophies and create a strong bond that will allow our athletes the best chance to progress at the National level.
This last month I’ve had the pleasure to work with Peter and his staff from the FHA high performance teams. I already have had the opportunity to meet with a lot of people involved in Alberta field hockey. I’m looking forward to working with the many people involved within the sport. If you have any questions or just want to have a chat, feel free to contact me! My contact details are below.
