The international player of the year nominees will be chosen by the Scotland national teams before going to a public vote while the Brave award nominees will be chosen by the Brave coaches. A panel of judges will compile the shortlists for all other awards.

A Scottish hockey spokesman said: “Nominate those who deserve recognition for their hard work, dedication, contribution and commitment.”

Meanwhile, the board and staff of Scottish Hockey held a meeting to check in on strategic direction, initiatives and adopting the sportscotland Changing Lives approach in equality, diversity and inclusion. A spokesman described it as “a fantastic day”.

The Changing Lives initiative believes that sporting and non-sporting organisations can pro-actively use sport and physical activity as an intentional tool to achieve both increased participation and wider social outcomes.

The sportscotland website says: “Evidence shows that being active brings about positive changes beyond participation and can impact positively on the health and wellbeing of individuals, on their skills and learning, and on communities, ensuring a more inclusive and healthier nation.”
