Muscat is on the list of the International Hockey Federation?s (FIH) those countries which are striving to promote the game through a solid activity plan, said Tahir, an FIH certified coach on Tuesday.
He said the 8-day course would be attended by 25 local coaches to learn about basics and high performance of hockey. Tahir said the FIH was determined to promote hockey in Asia, especially in Middle East where the game was getting a new identity.
