Pete Tynam has graduated from the GB Hockey Advanced Coaching Programme (ACP).

Pete, from Alton, received his graduation certificate at Lee Valley Hockey Stadium from Danny Kerry, who coached the GB ladies to gold in the Rio Olympics, and Nick Pink, the chief executive of GB Hockey.

Only about 30 coaches are accepted on to the ACP each year.

It is usually a two-year course, but was extended to three because of the lockdowns.

It is a bespoke coaching programme with a mix of structured modules and individualised learning and development.

During the three years, Pete has worked closely with his mentor, GB ladies’ team manager Sam Beveridge, as well as GB and England coaches and coach educators to develop his tactical knowledge as well as team and player development skills.

Pete coaches adults and juniors at Alton Hockey Club and in the Hampshire junior development programme.

The club is currently running Back to Hockey sessions aimed at adults who are complete beginners and those who may not have played hockey for several years.

Pete is also involved in the Alton’s Hockey Heroes programme aimed at five to eight year olds.
