Planning Your Coaching System
Planning your Coaching System 2023-24
School Of Human And Behavioural Sciences
Module - Semester 2
The course will be delivered by a UKCC Level 4 qualified Coach. Content will cover pathway planning in relation to contemporary models of talent development. Students will be supported to develop coaching systems that are underpinned by reflective practice and coaching philosophy. Planning will consider the more holistic pathway in relation to technical, tactical and emotional athlete development as well as individualised programme development and working with parents in sport. Lectures will be supported by workshops, seminars and practicals.
- Critique relevant literature and theory, which can be used to inform the development of effective coaching systems in relation to technical, tactical and emotional athlete development.
- Demonstrate 'interdisciplinary thinking' in relation to planning pathways that consider the importance of working in teams when coaching. This may be in relation to working closely with sports psychologists, strength and conditioning coaches and / or parents.
- Demonstrate the ability to develop multidisciplinary coaching plans that consider both the pathway as a whole as well as individual athlete development.
- Plan and apply an individual coaching philosophy that can be implemented within a sporting pathway. This should be idealistic, flexible, practically useful, and credible.
