Indian women’s hockey team coach Janek Schopman surprised everyone by resigning from her post on February 23. Janek submitted his resignation to Hockey India President Dilip Tirkey. Shopman was facing constant criticism after the Indian women’s team did not qualify for the Olympic Games to be held in Paris this year. Apart from this, he had also given the statement that it is difficult for women to live in India a few days ago, after which this is also believed to be one of the reasons for his resignation.

Discrimination against female coaches and players

Janek Schopman had said in her statement that there is discrimination against women coaches and players in India. I felt very lonely in the last two years. I come from a culture where women are respected and valued. I don’t feel that way here. Let us tell you that the Dutch coach had replaced Sword Marine in 2021, who had led the team to a historic fourth place in the Tokyo Olympics. Shopman’s contract was due to expire in August after this year’s Paris Olympics. But after her recent critical comments, it was expected that she would not continue in the post. The 46-year-old coach submitted his resignation to Hockey India President Dilip Tirkey after the team’s campaign ended in the domestic leg of the FIH Hockey Pro League in Odisha, Hockey India (HI) reported.

Time to start a new chapter in Indian women’s hockey

In a statement issued by Hockey India after the resignation of Janek Shopman, he said that his resignation after the disappointment in the recent Olympic Qualifiers has paved the way for Hockey India to find a suitable head coach for the women’s hockey team. Which can prepare the Indian team for the next Women’s World Cup in 2026 and the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics. It is time to start a new chapter in Indian women’s hockey with player progress being our focus. While Shopman was the coach, the Indian team played 74 matches, out of which they won 38, drew 17 and lost 19.
