Prepare Your Club Coaches of the Future Workshop

As part of our 2017 Club Development Series - Waterford Sports Partnership presents a FREE WORKSHOP - PREPARE YOUR CLUB COACHES OF THE FUTURE

Monday 10th  April 2017 |  6.30 to 9.30pm
WIT Arena | Carriganore | Waterford

What will the Workshop cover?
The workshop aims to help clubs to develop young coaches.  As part of a successful club development plan, sports clubs should look at developing young coaches to safeguard the future development of their club.  This workshop will help to develop young coaches communication and positional skills in leading a group of people for a fun and interactive coaching session. The practical nature of the course enables coaches to experience and evaluate a coaching session led by the seminar tutors and also allow participants to deliver a sample session aimed at developing key leadership skills  for warm ups, main activities and cool downs. 
IMPORTANT: The young coaches (aged 14 to 17) attending the workshop must be supported by an adult coach from their club at the Workshop to help establish a coaching pathway.
