UK Coaching Children (5-12)

Overview

It's not just about winning! Help children reach their full potential.

Do you coach children aged between 5 and 12 years of age? Then this is an exciting chance for you to reconsider the emphasis of your coaching and enhance the experience of your young participants in the process. You'll be introduced to the 'C' system of coaching children, which will improve your soft and personal skills helping you to become a more effective coach.

The course includes a practical session to help you put the Cs into practice.

This workshop was formerly called 'Coaching the Whole Child: Positive Development Through Sport'.

You will cover:

  • The 'C' system of coaching children: connection; confidence; character; creativity; caring an compassion; and competence
  • How to incorporate these Cs into your coaching sessions
  • How to improve the development of all your young children by offering them an exciting, challenging and well-structured environment in which they can discover all that is good about sport
  • How to develop your coaching to incorporate positive youth development into your sessions

This course is held at the Academy of Sport facilities at London South Bank University and taught by exceptional tutors with years of industry experience.
