SPORTSCOACH UK LAUNCH NEW COACHING WEBSITE
SPORTSCOACH UK has launched a new website that has an area dedicated solely to coaches. The For Coaches section has key information on getting started in coaching, CPD/training and a searchable resource bank.
The following courses are usually run in the evenings, cost approx. £25-30 and NISA will credit you with 5 points for each course attended, but only for a maximum of 2 courses each year. This would be half of the number of points a Level 2 coach needs to accrue in a year.
There are many other courses, all of which offer opportunities to expand our understanding of coaching, in any sport. Whilst many, at first glance, seem unrelated to skating, ideas, attitudes and experiences of other coaches, involved in other sports, can considerably enhance and promote the development of our own thinking and coaching.
