During the tournament, we organized a seminar for referees, coaches, and administrative staff.
The seminar for players was focused on Anti-doping, CPR training procedures, Young athlete nutrition, Sports injuries and recovery, Fair play, and Good Governance principles, and finished with Social inclusion workshop.
The seminar for coaching staff was focused on the Psychological development of young athletes, Fair play and Conduct, Good governance, and finished with the Social inclusion workshop.
The seminar for referees was focused on Fair play and Conduct, Good governance, New ice hockey rules and regulations, Video analysis with the instructor, and Presentation of referee’s career options and path.
The on-site feedback the project organizers acquired from the participants shows great excitement and satisfaction with the newly acquired knowledge that would help them in their future path within the ice hockey ecosystem and in their own environments.
