New Delhi, 26 July 2020: After having conducted an online workshop for all Hockey India registered Technical Delegates and Umpire Managers last month to ensure standardization of assessment of Officials, Hockey India on Saturday organized yet another online workshop for the Hockey India registered Technical Delegates and Technical Officers to ensure continuation in the development process of the participating Technical Officials.

The online workshop took place on Saturday through video conferencing and was conducted by FIH World Panel/FIH Pro League Technical Official & Certified FIH Academy Educator, Mr. Moghul Mohammed Muneer. It was attended by a total of 22 candidates which consisted of Hockey India registered Technical Delegates and experienced Technical Officers, and focused majorly on the preparation of Match Schedule by the Technical Officials as per the FIH Competition Policies And Procedures.

The first set of workshops last month was launched with the aim of ensuring standardization of assessment of Officials in order to provide a better and more efficient method of effectively marking the Officials' performance through Performance Reports. Those previous workshops saw the candidates being educated regarding preparation of Match Schedule, and were given assignments in which they had to draft Match Schedules as per the various possible scenarios. Yesterday's workshop also saw each candidate being provided with appropriate feedback as per the assignments they had submitted last month, and interact with the Certified FIH Academy Educator to ensure all doubts are cleared, and the standard of Officiating in India can improve.

Mr. Gyanendro Ningombam, Officiating President, Hockey India, spoke on how these workshops will further help in improving the standard of Officiating in the country, "I believe Tournament Officials play a major part in the conduct of various domestic and international tournaments around the world. I am delighted that Hockey India has been able to devise a platform for our registered Tournament Officials which assists in their all-round and overall development under the guidance of experienced Educators. It has always been Hockey India's endeavour to not only raise the standard of Coaching, but also provide sufficient exposure to our Officials to ensure they can be among the best in the world."

India Colts defender/ dragflicker Pratap Lakra is yet another prodigy emerging from the tribal belt of Sundergarh district in Odisha which is a hotbed of talented hockey players.
