National hockey coaches Hector Smith Sr and Shaun Corrie will go back and assess their performances here in India hoping things will go a step up.
After losing their games but putting up a good performance, the two coaches felt that a lot needed to be done in order to prepare the teams for international outings in the future.
Smith Sr is suggesting that an elite group of players be chosen.
The appointment of Australian Brent Livermore, who plays for Bengali Tigers, as a high performance officer, is the beginning.
Smith Sr said the Hero Hockey World League Round 2 gave them an insight on what international hockey was all about and also showed them their weaknesses.
"When we played in the Round 2, we played with teams mostly from Asia and Asian hockey is power hockey, it is totally different from the games we've been playing back home.
"Our style of hockey we play is more open just like rugby."
Smith Sr, who watched all the big matches during the tournament, said sitting in the stand had taught him so many things that his team would adopt.
He said the elite group would at least give them an idea on the team they were preparing.
Corrie said playing at the tournament showed that his team had the capabilities of competing at the elite level. "We had the most minimal resources available but we managed to play good games though we didn't win," he said. "The other teams are made up of professional players and here we are competing against them."
Smith and Corrie thanked everyone back home who supported them all the way even though they were winless. The teams had the opportunity to visit the Taj Mahal on Monday. They were to depart New Delhi early this morning and arrive at Nadi tomorrow morning.
