Growing Coaches Programme

WHY COACH?
The first Questions I asked after the Workshop was why I coach and how did I start?
•
Love of my Sports
•
Interested and supportive school Coaching staff
•
Club Youth Coaching programme
•
Regional and National Coaching Staff
•
Professional role at Schools
In essence I coach because I love the game and have a passion to develop young players to
share in that love. Even to this day I have a desire to improve as a coach and deliver the
best I can to players I come into contact with, whether school students or HP Athletes

COACH EDUCATION AT AVONDALE COLLEGE
•
A Coach leadership Education Programme delivered through PE, Sports Academy
and Sport bridging the perceived gap that exists
•
Coaching School Teams filling the gap left by lack of staffing
•
Preparing and organising Sporting events at the College
•
Working closely with our contributing Primary and Intermediate Schools
THE VISION
“Leadership is a privilege and a Service to others”
This initiative led by Sport New Zealand, facilitated by ourselves and supported by Sport
Waitakere will encourage student empowerment and leadership through Sport
Many of our Year 9 Sports Academy students have already demonstrated and been given the
opportunity to lead within their Primary and Intermediate Schools. It is vital that we nurture
these abilities from the onset and develop these young people into the Leaders of the Sports
Academy and Sport at Avondale College.
We already do this through the programme but both the Growing Leaders and Growing Coaches
Programmes give a contextual plan of implementation and delivery with resource support.
All the Coaching Staff in the Sports Academy have similar philosophies on developing the
individual and Life skills, the vehicle being their Sport. As such it is the ideal model to deliver
the programme through.
There is no doubt that the advantages are that Avondale College will benefit from the programme
by enhancing the students Leadership potential, creating a greater pool of talented leaders
to promote and help deliver Sport at the College. The possibilities are endless from
organising Sporting events within the school, Lunchtime activities, Workshops at our Feeder
Primary and Intermediate Schools as well as coaching our Junior Sports programme.
The Aim of the Growing Leaders programme in Year 9 Sports Academy is to grow their leadership
potential, exploring, discovering and navigating Leadership by experiential opportunities. They
will explore themselves, building a foundation to lead others through Sport.
In Year 10 we will facilitate the Growing Coaches programme where the Coaching experiences
enhance the Leadership development. They will understand that Coaching includes Learning,
programme and session planning and progression as well as constant evaluation. They will
realise that these Leadership qualities and coaching skills are transferable into Life Skills.
