NEW DELHI: India has enlisted the expertise of Dutch goalkeeping specialist Dennis van de Pol to bolster the men’s hockey team’s preparations for the Paris Olympics.
Van de Pol, a renowned hockey goalkeeping coach, has been collaborating with the Indian goalkeepers for close to four years now, initiating his first stint in 2019.
He will be joining the ongoing national coaching camp at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar, where he will closely collaborate with PR Sreejesh, Krishan Pathak, and Suraj Karkera.
The 10-day specialized goalkeeping camp, under the supervision of chief coach Craig Fulton, is scheduled to conclude on March 26, just a week before the team embarks on their tour of Australia.
“This is a very important phase for the Indian men’s team. In their quest for another podium finish at the Olympics, Hockey India is ensuring the team is provided with all the necessary support they need to fulfil this dream,” Hockey India President Dilip Tirkey was quoted as saying in a media release.
“We have re-emphasised the importance of these specialised coaching camps in goalkeeping and drag flicking.
Van de Pol had conducted two special camps with the Indian team last year in July and September ahead of the Asian Games.
“We are delighted to engage Dennis who has been closely working with this group of goalkeepers for nearly four years now and understands the minor tweaks needed to lift their performance,” he added.
