Description

Who is the training for?:

***THIS COURSE IS ONLY OPEN TO SGB STAFF, BOARD & HIGH LEVEL VOLUNTEERS, AND CSH STAFF***

Please note this is a two hour interactive information session for SGB staff to be made aware of sportscotland's Coach Development Programme.

These sessions are designed to give you, someone who may or may not have a coaching background, an insight into what support is available for coaches. The goal is to increase awareness and understanding of the CPD which sportscotland can provide to coaches within your sport.

The sportscotland Coach Development Programme is split over two levels:

Coach Connect - Aimed at coaches at UKCC Level 2 OR UKCC Level 1 working towards L2 (or equivalent)
Coaching Talent – Aimed at coaches at UKCC Level 3 OR UKCC Level 2 working towards level 3 (or equivalent)

which cover four core topics:

1) Physical Literacy
2) Coordination & Control
3) Understanding Talent
4) Growth & Maturation

We would like to offer you the opportunity to explore and discuss the topics with one of sportscotland's National Trainers and your peers by giving you a flavour of what is covered in each topic workshop.


Summary:

This information session is designed to give you a feel for what is covered in the workshops for topics 3 & 4 (we have another workshop found here covering topics 1 & 2)

The course you are signing up for will look at the outcomes you and your coaches can expect to achieve by going on the full Understanding Talent workshop which has the following learning outcomes:

- Understand the key aspects and implications of physical suitability
- Understand what is meant by the development process and how to implement this in your coaching role

You will also learn about the outcomes of the full Growth & Maturation workshop:

- Understand the key principles of growth & maturation and development
- Identify how this affects your athletes
- Identify challenges this brings to you as the coach and potential solutions within your coaching practice
- Recognise that athletes and players with different impairments may require adaption in coaching practice.

More information and short videos on each topic can be found here on the sportscotland website. I would also ask that you download the sportscotland coaching app which is free todownload via the App store or Play store

Any requests for workshops can be made online via the sportscotland website.
