Adding to cart… The item has been added

Beginning Coaching general principles targets the beginner coach with a focus on the 'soft skills' of coaching including: group management, communication, risk management, planning and ethical responsibilities of the coach.

Inclusive practices have been emphasised throughout the manual, so that coaches are better able to apply information on how to work with specific population groups such as athletes with a disability and indigenous athletes.

Current information regarding ethical issues such as child protection, drugs in sport and working with officials/coaches and parents are included. Information in each chapter is more 'reader friendly', incorporating a range of case studies to demonstrate how to apply theoretical concepts, and 'tips' to summarise key 'take home' points.
