Coaches teach athletes what to do (the skills) and when to do it (the tactics). People often get help from a coach if they want to get to a place they can’t get to on their own. The coaches’ job is to work with the athlete and help them get the results they came for. To ensure this happens the best thing your club can do is start developing your people.
People are always keen to attend the coach learning modules as they always want the latest tips and tricks. Over the past 7 years, more than 1,400 people have taken part in at least one of the available modules… and this number is still growing!
Time and creativity are necessary in creating coach development opportunities – not money. The range of coach learning modules are proven ways to create team spirit and foster commitment to excellence in your club’s coaches. These take between 2-3 hours and can be completed in an evening or during the weekend. The Districts are given CoachForce investment funding to help cover the costs to run the modules for you. It is also possible for your club to access coaching resources at little or no cost (e.g. apply for a grant; or use the online videos created by Squash NZ).
