The Hockey Coaching Wizard, Gary Johnson, will lead the Easter Hockey course at Sedbergh for 2022. Gary is eager to get off the mark with Sedbergh Courses after two Covid effected Easters and the planning of the hockey experience is well under way. Expect the unexpected, as Gary and the coaches engineer the programme to open players eyes to possibilities they never even knew existed.
Fun, enthusiasm, and positive energy levels will be a part of the coaching DNA throughout the course, but the team’s real strength is knowledge transfer. Imparting the extensive knowledge from every corner of the game to positively impact on every single individual.
Be Brave, Do the Loco Motion, Lets get Uglee and The Pro League are all themes throughout the week focussing on the development of Defensive Principles, Moving the Ball, Goal Scoring and Team Choice – Scenario Solving.

A message from Gary
“I am looking forward to meeting coaches and children wanting to develop and learn together. I can’t wait to see what they will bring to the pitch and how much fun we can have. “
What has been your greatest achievement as an athlete?
"I have been lucky across the years to have had the support to enable me to participate in both Athletics and Hockey. Within hockey I captained my local club for 15 seasons and didn’t miss a single game, including friendlies, league, or cup matches amassing over 500 games."
What has been the highlight of your coaching career?
"My biggest achievement was completing the GB Hockey ACP programme, this really challenged my thinking on how to provide the right environment for all to develop and allowed me to visit many other fantastic coaching environments to share ideas and take some golden nuggets away for my own coaching, which has benefitted all."
