The course was designed for coaches in youth programs or those desiring to coach in youth programs. The program consisted of classroom and field sessions. In addition, youth players attended the weekend sessions for practical teaching situations for the coaches.

Six of the coaches were selected and given equipment bags containing hockey sticks donated to the program by Dita USA for teaching in youth programs. These selected coaches submitted a coaching program promising to start 4 new youth programs within 12 months in their own country.

FIH Master Coach Rodolfo Mendoza and FIH Grade I coach Shiaz Virjee conducted the course.
