Event description

Description

Support of coach development and of coaches within the association/club environment will provide the best opportunities for coaches, and positive experiences for young players.

Retention of players hinges on good coaching and while the traditional accreditation process goes in some way to impart good coaching techniques; best practice and research conducted by Sport Australia suggest that ongoing support provides the best result in the development of good coaches.

The workshop will explore what is a coach the coach program; it will introduce various available models to better the overall coaching skills within the association/club.

There are multiple coach the coach programs that will be introduced in this workshop, some are structured and formal and others unstructured and informal in nature. This workshop will provide you with the tools and information to better identify your needs, what can best suit your current coaching pool, and what strategies will be most effective in the ongoing development of your coaches.

The workshop will presented by Darryl Durham (Optimum Edge).
