Getting Started in Coaching
What is Getting Started in Coaching?
The Getting Started in Coaching course is a KiwiSport funded, generic entry level course for beginner coaches and/or people who are considering getting into coaching. The non-sport specific course covers the basics of coaching with the aim of providing an insight to what is involved.
The aim of the course is to give attendees a number of ‘tools’ to build their coaching confidence and will equip the coach with the skills to provide a positive experience for children to learn fundamental skills and ensure ongoing participation in sport.
The course is 2 hours and is practical and interactive, focusing on the generic aspects of coaching:
- Understanding the athlete & athlete centered coaching
- Planning a session
- Coaching a skill
- Behavior management
Is there a cost?
The Getting Started in Coaching course is FREE to all attendees.
Benefits for your sport include….
- Encourage more volunteers into coaching by supporting their development.
- Ensure positive experiences for athletes through qualified and confident coaches.
Course dates will be advertised on the Sport Wellington website and in the Sport Connector newsletters.
