Coaching the Whole Child: Positive Development Through Sport
Provide your coaches with tools to incorporate positive youth development into their sessions as a specific coaching outcome, and not just as a consequence.
(This workshop is specifically for coaches of children up to 12 years of age.)
What Coaches Will Learn:
- The traditional model of coaching and learning based on the development of participants’ technical, tactical, physical, mental and social competencies.
- The 'C' system of coaching* model of positive youth development in sport.
- To understand the interaction between the development of participant competencies and the 'C' system of coaching, to produce positive personal and social development as a specific coaching outcome.
- To apply the 'C' system of coaching to their current practice across the Active Start, FUNdamentals and Learning to Play and Practice phases of participant development.
Help coaches understand how their coaching fits into a much wider agenda than sport.
‘I thought “Coaching the Whole Child: Positive Development Through Sport” was really beneficial for the coaches to attend – the resources were brilliant and the tutor was excellent. The workshop’s combination of science theory, along with the practical examples, has given the coaches the tools to help them develop young performers.’
Richard Colman, Coaching Development Manager, Wesport
