Event description
Reinvigorate your approach to coaching children

About this Event

Our newly-evolved workshop incorporates the latest research on essential topics that are intrinsic in the coaching of children between the ages of 5 and 12.

This is an exciting chance for you to reconsider the emphasis of your coaching and enhance the experience of your young participants.

The new chapters will be delivered in a practical way to provide you with all the innovative techniques and cutting-edge information you need to become a more effective coach.

To help you understand how your coaching fits into a much wider agenda than sport, you will:

  • learn a mix of traditional and contemporary models of coaching based on the development of participants’ technical, tactical, physical, mental and social competencies
  • take a detailed look at the ‘C’ system of coaching to equip you with new tools to improve your soft and personal skills.
  • be introduced to the principles of Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU), cognitive considerations for coaching 5-12 year olds and understanding the importance of child physiology.
  • learn fun and innovative practical techniques for keeping children engaged to blend with the pioneering academic theory.

You will receive a copy of Coaching Children 5-12: The Next Generation at the workshop to guide you in your future coaching.

The comprehensive 64-page book includes sections on:

  • What is the holistic coaching of children?
  • Why do we need to consider physical development?
  • The importance of pedagogy, creativity and self-reflection.
  • How age impacts on the joints, cardiovascular system, aerobic and anaerobic training, strength training, plyometric training, flexibility and mobility.
  • Injury considerations and the importance of nutrition and hydration.
  • Creating a learning enviornment that fulfils children’s psychological needs.
  • An introduction to games-based assessment.
