ADVICE TO COACHES: These qualities are not intended as talent identification or selection criteria, but as learning focuses to inform the practices you design, how you behave and the developmental environments you endeavour to create Players who are… Fast* Player is able to demonstrate the necessary speed of body, mind, and/or stick to compete in a fast dynamic game. Speed of body: Player demonstrates sound levels of peak speed and acceleration speed and technique. Speed of mind: Player demonstrates sound levels of context-sensitive (for example, field location, score, and time) on-field decision making, both while in attack (either in possession of the ball or without) and in defence. Speed of stick: Player demonstrates effective ‘foot skills’, decision making and stick skills and technique. Physically, Mentally & Emotionally Durable* Physically Literate* Player is able to regularly perform over time, in training and competition, when needed, without injury. Repeatability: Player demonstrates repeated sprint ability and aerobic speed endurance to increase intensity in the final period of competition. Player is able to demonstrate the basic fundamental physical movement skills to be able to perform increasingly complex hockey specific skills. Fundamental movement skills: Player is able to demonstrate the fundamental locomotor (walking, running, jumping and landing, and evasion), stability (static and dynamic balance), and manipulation (handling and controlling a ball with the stick) skills that form the foundation for (but can be learned alongside) more specific hockey skills. Consistently available: Player demonstrates a robust physiological profile that is resilient to the increasingly high volumes of work required from training and competition. Health literacy: Player demonstrates a holistic understanding of the body and its function; they know what good health looks like for them? Hockey specific movements: Player is able to demonstrate strength in flexion, and an appropriate hip range of movement, rotational power, and lower lib eccentric control and strength. * A  dapted from: Jennings, D., Cormack, S.J., Coutts, A.
