Arguably, Hockey Wales have long been ranked below that of where a proud and successful sporting nation like Wales should find themselves. However, since Kevin Johnson took the reigns of the Women’s side in early 2016 and since then they have quickly climbed the rankings ladder.
Kevin set out to increase standards and bring a modern dimension to hockey in Wales. He recognised that utilising innovative technologies could support his vision.
As many of their team were not professionally contracted, most playing in the English National Leagues, being geographically separated was a legacy issue Kevin also needed to overcome.
He approached Coach Logic for support with getting the current video and communications shared throughout, not just limited to those in the match day squad. During this time Kevin still combined coaching at leading English club side Holcombe up until a few months ago where he felt that for Wales to keep progressing he needed to step away from the club coaching.
