Over 200 secondary school students developed their coaching skills across a number of workshops held throughout the Wellington region this month. In partnership with College Sport Wellington and ACCSportSmart, the KiwiSport funded ‘Getting Started in Coaching’ courses give attendees a ‘start up toolkit’ to build their coaching confidence and equip them with the skills to provide a positive experience for those they are coaching and ensure their ongoing participation in sport. Since 2015, 26 secondary schools and over 1,000 students have taken part in the courses resulting in an impact on more than 10,000 children in the greater Wellington region. And a big thanks to Wellington Rugby, Capital Football, Capital Hockey, Capital Zone Basketball Trust, Netball Wellington Centre, Netball Hutt Valley Centre,and Kapi Mana Netball Centre for delivering sessions throughout the courses!
