"102" FORMER HOCKEY INTERNATIONALS Presentation Minister of Youth & Sports YB Dato’ Ismail Sabri bin Yaakob By " THE URGENT NEED TO REJUVENATE MALAYSIAN HOCKEY TO WORLD CLASS" To On 22 October 2008
This booklet titled as “The Urgent Need to Rejuvenate Malaysian Hockey to World Class” has its origin from the “Open Letter”. The “Open Letter” provides an insight as to the state of affairs of Malaysian hockey. The text of the letter is as follows:
"102" FORMER HOCKEY INTERNATIONALS " THE URGENT NEED TO REJUVENATE MALAYSIAN HOCKEY TO WORLD CLASS" “ 102” former Malaysian hockey internationals came together to support the letter so as something could be done for Malaysian hockey. The Minister of Youth & Sports was very supportive of the call and wanted a proposal from the group.

A 4 man team worked around the clock including setting-up a blog referred as “102-formerhockeyinternationals.blogspot.com” as a means of communication and keeping interested parties updated.
The 99 page booklet makes a critical analysis of hockey by reviewing the components of the Game and Administration. The team has identified 22 elements from the 2 components and analysed their respective weakness and strength.
The critical analysis of the 22 elements provided an in-depth outlook of the state of Malaysian hockey. What appeared interesting is that there are 3 key elements that can transform Malaysian hockey to World Class. They are: -
"102" FORMER HOCKEY INTERNATIONALS " THE URGENT NEED TO REJUVENATE MALAYSIAN HOCKEY TO WORLD CLASS" Accordingly, we have encompassed these 3 elements as part of the “Recommendations” and also added another 3 elements i.e. Coaches, Development and Database to reflect that they can be easily undertaken and achievable. It is built on the principles of “Right person in the Right position” and the term “excellence”. Finally, we have also incorporated Chapter 6 i.e. “The Way Forward”. It provides the “modus operandi” of implementing the said “Recommendations” in the 3 key elements, which itself becomes the “first step” in the journey for Malaysian hockey to achieve and sustain World Class status.

While we have undertaken a critical analysis of the weakness and strength of the 2 components i.e. Game and Administration, the Recommendations do not cover all the 22 elements of the 2 components.
They essentially cover what we refer to us the 3 main aspects of the elements and 3 others . This provides an insight how the entire recommendations can be easily undertaken.
The choices have been made on the basis of their importance and they reflect the main necessities of change .

If the Government provides the necessary incentives of “ double expenditure ” tax breaks for sports i.e. for every RM1.00 spent the tax deduction is RM2.00, many Corporate organizations would readily become members.
In a way this would assist MHF to source funds and become financially independent to undertake their activities, thereby easing the burden on the Government.
This would bring a wider spectrum of Affiliates, who themselves can assist in instilling the Corporate and Scientific cultures that is much needed in MHF .

Develop clear cut objectives and targets in line with Master Plan taking into account of age groups.
A full time qualified and experienced Director of Development (DOD) to provide a detailed Action Plan to achieve the objectives and targets including supervision and monitoring. It also covers Indoor Hockey.

Under the Development Program, within States inter schools development tournament shall be held followed by Inter State Development tournament.
These tournaments shall provide a basis to scout talents as part of supply chain to the National teams.
The Development Program conducted shall be captured in the Database including details of Training and Tactical Methodology, players profile and the various progress reports.
DOD shall also liaise with MSSM and State MSN as part of their development program The DOD shall assist in creating a larger base of players incorporating Sukan Teras and Tunas Cemerlang.
The 3 Development Programs shall be operating concurrently in any State i.e proposed MHF program, Sukan Teras and Tunas Cemerlang. This would create a competitive spirit within the State which is good for the promotion and development of hockey.

To achieve World Class status in hockey is not an overnight effort. More so to sustain it, there is a need to ensure the existence of a “feeder system” i.e. “supply chain” of players, who have come through a planned Development program ready to fit into the retiring “shoes’ of the hockey internationals.
What has been recommended is essentially to ensure that the principal stakeholder i.e. Affiliates be part of the Development process.
The Policies that is created from the Master Plan and the SOPs would provide the basis to create and operate the “feeder system”.
The competitive nature that arises between MHF undertaken Development program, Sukan Teras and Tunas Cemerlang would create competition among players for places to enter into the “feeder system” for National teams.
The Affiliates orientated program would also enlarge the “supply base” for the “feeder system”, from 9000 to 16 000 players.

Issues pertaining to bidding and organizing of Junior World Cup which seems different from the support NSC had provided in writing.
The need to spent RM34.0 million for Junior World Cup during the current world economic climate.
The failure to constitute the three man Panel to undertake the investigation on the performance of the National teams.
The intervention we propose is for the “relevant parties” to undertake it in the following manner.
Main Intervention Strategy
This Intervention Strategy is to request MHF themselves to undertake the necessary Constitutional amendments as per “Recommendations” and also officially address the issues outlined in the preceding point No 12.
Alternate Intervention Strategy
This option shall only be exercised if MHF fails to undertake the Main Intervention Strategy . The Alternate Intervention Strategy requires the “relevant parties” to set-up a “ Special Committee ” with the help of the Sports Commissioner under the Sports Act, so as to take control of MHF and reconstitute as per “Recommendations” including the other main issues as per point No 12.
"102" FORMER HOCKEY INTERNATIONALS " THE URGENT NEED TO REJUVENATE MALAYSIAN HOCKEY TO WORLD CLASS" -95-
The Main Intervention Strategy would require the “relevant parties” to set-up a “ Task Force ” and the timetable so as MHF can undertake the necessary work properly and report the progress to the “ Task Force ”.
This Main Intervention Strategy can be undertaken immediately as part of the BGM or through an EGM.
The Main Intervention Strategy becomes a “ Self regulating ” methodology for MHF to undertake it themselves.
Time is an essence while monitoring and supervision by “ Task Force ” is fundamental.
For any reasons` MHF refuses to undertake the proposed Main Intervention Strategy or in implementing the Strategy, the “ Task Force ” believes it may not be achieved, then the “relevant parties” would have to consider implementing the Alternate Intervention Strategy .
In doing so, the “ Special Committee ” that is to take control of MHF, should reconstitute MHF within a specified period. Thereafter hand back MHF to the Affiliates including the new members.

The Alternate Intervention Strategy is a drastic measure and it is essential the International Hockey Federation (FIH) be duly informed. OCM’s presences would assist in the matter.
If the reason for the drastic measure is justifiable, there is no reason why FIH would have any major objection, so long as MHF is handed back to the Affiliates in the timely manner.
The Intervention Strategy is essentially to set a foundation for MHF to move in the right direction with the various stakeholders playing a key role through qualitative inputs.
Ultimately it is to ensure that the “Right person is in the Right position” embodying the principles of “Excellence” who shall take Malaysia to World Class and sustain the position.
