The Bermuda Hockey Federation has announced the appointment of South African Kovin Moodley, as the new coach of the national men’s and women’s teams.

Moodley, who holds FIH Level 2 certification, will lead the teams in the upcoming Central American and Caribbean Games qualifier tournaments, which will be held in Bermuda over the Easter weekend.

“I’m really excited to be involved with the Bermuda Hockey programme and I am looking forward to competing at the CAC qualifiers,” said Moodley.

The BHF pointed to Moodley’s passion for the sport as well his experience as a coach at various levels.

“Kovin hails from South Africa and brings with him a tremendous passion for field hockey along with a proven record in coaching. He is an FIH Level 2 Hockey Coach and is a Technical Director for SportWays, a Dutch company ‒ the oldest and largest organisers of hockey camps,” the Bermuda Hockey Federation said in a release on Wednesday.

Moodley has left his position of Director of Sport at Penzance Primary School and is an active player with KZN Men’s Provincial Hockey Team.

“Developing younger players is a huge focus in his coaching activities as Head of Northwood Crusaders Youth Flux Program and Kovin also looks forward to inspiring the island’s youth players while he is here by getting involved with our current Funstix programme and giving us plans to increase youth development for the future of our sport,” the release continued.

Bermuda will face five international teams ‒ Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Puerto Rico, Jamaica and Guyana, who will field a women’s team only ‒ at the National Sports Centre from April 14 to 17 at the CAC qualifier.

“This CAC Qualifier tournament is a golden opportunity to push Bermuda forward in the international arena, with the top two men’s and women’s teams earning a spot in the next CAC Games, which is a Pan American Games qualifier,” said a BHF spokesperson during the announcement of the qualifying series earlier this month.

The CAC Games will be held in San Salvador, El Salvador, from May 6 to 21 next year.
