Name: Craig West

Date of Birth: 06/04/1984


I have been coaching since I was 17 years old and was able to pursue this as a full time career in 2013, working with both junior and senior players at various levels. I have been fortunate enough to be involved with a number of WP Junior and Senior teams both as a coach and as an analyst as well as coaching at the SportWays High Performance for WP Boys. After spending 4 years as the Head of Coaching at Paarl Boys High School, I moved to Dubai in 2018 to take over as head coach for Field Hockey Academy where I am currently trying to grow the sport in the UAE from a grass roots level.
