Singh Jasminder Bal has an online clip of him lobbing a goalkeeper that has been viewed over 12,000 times, but still believes his biggest impact will come as a coach.
The video of the Penarth Hockey Club player - nonchalantly flicking the ball up with his stick and tapping it, with his back to goal, over the head of a flailing keeper - is impressive and worth checking out on Twitter.
But then so, too, is the coaching journey undertaken by the 27-year-old who was recently appointed as a development coach to the Wales U16 and U18 boys, alongside Ieuan Bartlett.
Sometimes in sport, players feel the pull of coaching long before it’s time to hang up their boots, spikes, racket or hockey stick and Jasminder – who moved to Wales 10 years ago from Hong Kong – is straight from that mould.
Jose Mourinho always wanted to coach in his 20s, Wayne Pivac turned to coaching at 28 following knee problems, while New Zealander Mike Hesson – one of cricket’s most successful current coaches – was just 20 when he decided to teach others how to use a bat rather than wield one himself.
Jasminder’s first love was athletics and the high jump, but then he switched to hockey after two years engrossed in the family business when he first arrived in Wales.
He joined Llanishen and Caerphilly Hockey Club and when they were short of coaches he decided to put on a tracksuit, pick up a whistle, and get involved.
