The FIH Young Athlete Academy (YAA) Diploma is an online learning programme for hockey players aged 14 to 18 years who are serious about becoming the best they can be. All sessions are LIVE and interactive with FIH Academy Coaches and International Athlete mentors.

YAA Diploma candidates will join a group of 20 likeminded young athletes from across the World. Each group has 3 or 4 mentor sub-groups when you will receive personal guidance from an FIH Academy Coach and International Athlete Mentor whose job it is to guide you through the 3 month programme.

The Diploma takes three months to complete, in which time you will attend around 15-20 events, including workshops, mentor sessions and special presentations with top coaches and players in hockey/sport.
