32 Young Hockey Leaders from Scotland, Wales, Ireland, the Netherlands, Malawi, Tanzania, New Zealand and Germany have recently been awarded with a FIH Youth Leadership Certificate.

These young people have been selected for this prestigious award due to their significant contribution to the development of hockey in their country in the areas of event management, coaching, umpiring, journalism, youth representation and administration.
