Student Coaches Put Through Their Paces

On February 18 and 19, close to 100 students coaches from around the region took part in our day long development workshops.  A joint project between College Sport Wellington and Sport Wellington, the workshops were held at the ASB Centre and Te Rauparaha Arena.  Students were able to engage with experts in their chosen summer sports, being Volleyball, Touch, Futsal and Floorball.  The aim of the Student Coaching workshop is to provide attendees a ‘coaching toolkit’, to build their coaching confidence and to equip them with the skills to provide a positive experience for those they are coaching and ensure their ongoing participation in sport.

Following on from these successful days, student coaches for our winter sports will get their opportunity to learn new skills in mid-May.  Information on these workshops will be available through the school Heads of Sport before the end of Term One.
