Coach Development Courses

Introductory Level

This interactive on-line coaching course is designed to help you to get started in coaching.  There are two modules; "Kick Start Your Coaching" which provides information on your role as a coach, communication, games for understanding, planning and delivering  a coaching session;  and “Safety Net”, which will help you to identify your role in providing a safe environment for yourself and your athletes. Each module is accompanied by a workbook which, once successfully completed and assessed, will lead to you being awarded a certificate of achievement.

Effective Coaching Module One

  • Getting Started in Coaching

This module can be delivered in a group workshop, tailored to your individual sporting code or a cluster of different sporting codes. It can also be completed in your own time via a supported distance learning approach. It is a foundation module and introduces the coach to the role and qualities of a coach, effective communication, long term athlete development, participant and group management, health & safety, injuries and risk management, the ethics of coaching, teaching games for understanding, session planning, session delivery and self reflection.

Effective Coaching Module Two

  • The Coaching Process

This module can be delivered in a group workshop, tailored to your individual sporting code or a cluster of different sporting codes. It can also be completed in your own time via a supported distance learning approach. It builds upon the knowledge gained from Effective Coaching Module One; "Getting Started in Coaching-An Introduction to Theory & Practice" and revisits long term athlete development, session planning and self reflection as well as focusing on how athletes learn,  learning styles, effective questioning techniques and ‘game day’ coaching.

Effective Coaching Module Three

  • The Science of Coaching

This module can be delivered in a group workshop, tailored to your individual sporting code or a cluster of different sporting codes. As with the previous two modules it can also be completed in your own time via a supported distance learning approach. By completing this module, a basic understanding of the body in action, psychology, biomechanics and fitness development will be developed.

Coach Mentoring & Mentor Training

Coach mentoring is a process that aims to support and advance coaches and coaching at all levels of sport and is a highly effective way for new coaches to learn the “how” of coaching, and apply theory that they may have learnt in a classroom or through independent study.

Mentors work with the coach to develop and strengthen their coaching skill, are a sounding board for problems, help to identify some weaknesses or just be a source of motivation and a reminder that the coach is doing a great job.

Mentoring relationships can be formally structured, with mentors assigned to coaches, or they can be informal, growing out of a chance encounter with a like-minded coach. They can be equally useful for those just starting out in their sport and those with many years of experience.

The Sport Development Team at Sport Tasman can now offer training for anyone wanting to become a coach mentor to develop the coaches within their own sport.
