WHY THIS COURSE IS THE BEST IN THE FIELD
While strongly grounded in applied sport science, this course also acknowledges the tremendous contribution that communication, teaching, and relationship skills play in being a successful coach. Coaches have to build rapport and trust with their athletes, staff, and performance team, and it is critical that coaches understand people.
During the course, participants are frequently asked to consider realistic coaching scenarios. The course relies heavily on scenario-based learning, which has been shown to result in deeper learning than lectures. Coaches must think critically and wrestle with scenarios where they must consider training science, psychology, gender dynamics, motor learning, and common sense to determine how to proceed.
The hands-on portion of the course focuses on the participants actively coaching each other and practicing the drills and cues they learn. The Olympic lifts are each broken down into smaller segments, giving coaches the ability to progress the lifts incrementally, spot errors, cue positions effectively, and correct errors at any stage. Coaches are primarily teachers; learning how to be a better teacher will make for a more effective coach.
