Coaches who previously completed the course said this:

  • My coaching style has changed to reflect a player-centered approach, it’s the reminder to keep coming back to this and keep asking myself – how is this benefiting the child.

  • The course is a must for any volunteer before they get stuck into the skills of any one sport.

  • A great course if you want to understand who you are coaching.

  • My mindset was very much concentrated on drills. The course was an eye opener for me in that it showed me you need to have an element of fun or even a play activity that’s completely different to the sport to encourage the kids to practice freedom of movement rather than stick to rigid techniques of how skills should be practiced.

  • Coaching children workshops have been really insightful and provided me with an ever-improving approach to understanding and applying my coach education to practice with young people in sport.

  • I am definitely much more confident in my delivery of providing activities to children of all ages & levels. My listing & observation skills have also improved greatly which helps me if required to adapt and make changes during activities themselves.
