Coaching Professional Development

CECL1

Been a busy start to the year. As well as all the coaching & coach education that both the coaches have been delivering, both Di & Scott have embarked on the next stage of their own coaching careers.

Di has started her British Triathlon Level 3 coaching award – a nine day commitment spread over a nine month period. There is only one Level 3 course being run in 2014.

The Level 3 Certificate in Coaching Triathlon is designed to improve theoretical and practical coaching skills through group discussion, presentations and practical coaching experiences throughout all three disciplines. The course introduces the interdisciplinary nature of sport science and periodisation for coaching on a individual basis from novice to age-group level.

Scott is also looking to improve his coaching and is one of only six coaches selected to undergo the British Triathlon Kaizen programme; a progamme that is looking to take high performing coaches to become high performance coaches.
