Janneke Schopman steps down as chief coach of Indian women's hockey team

Janneke Schopman

Chief coach of the Indian women's hockey team, Janneke Schopman, has resigned, sparking a controversy after expressing dissatisfaction with the lack of value and respect from Hockey India.

The Dutch coach, who assumed the role in 2021, succeeded Sjoerd Marine, leading the team to a historic fourth position in the Tokyo Olympics. While her contract was initially set to conclude after the Paris Olympics in August 2024, her recent critical remarks hinted at an early departure.

Hockey India confirmed Schopman's resignation, stating that the 46-year-old coach submitted her resignation to Hockey India President Dilip Tirkey after the team's participation in the home leg of the FIH Hockey Pro League in Odisha.

"In light of the disappointment at the recent Olympic Qualifiers, her resignation has paved the way for Hockey India to look for a suitable Chief Coach for the Women's Hockey Team who could prepare the Indian Team for the next Women's World Cup in 2026 and Los Angeles Olympics 2028," mentioned a release from Hockey India.

The statement added, "It is time to begin a fresh chapter in Indian women's hockey with the players' progress being at the centre of our focus."
