Developing Our Student Coaches During Lockdown

Thank you to Shaun Matthews from Harbour Sport for facilitating an hour long online workshop with some of our student coaches. Such a great opportunity to utilise this time to up-skill our current and up and coming coaches.

Takeaways from the session:

Holly Jones (Year 13) – Football: It’s more important HOW something is taught not WHAT is taught.

Manon Bonar (Year 11) –  Volleyball: That you have to allow players to feel in control to keep them motivated.

Christabelle Watson (Year 11) Netball: That being a coach is more than just knowledge of the sport it’s about connecting with the players.

Anija Vodanovich (Year 12) Netball: Coaches attitudes towards their team has a bigger effect on a team then their skill level.
