We have now had so much to take in and i believe it is fair to say that we are coach prepared. We have had so many resources and information
Today we are having a second session with our Primary School students, and thankfully the weather seems to be holding out. We are currently sorting out our session plans and our time management and finishing off any last pieces of work. ( i.e – Blog posts, videos and vocabulary)
We are all working well and are very well prepared for today’s session, wish us luck
Today we were meant to having our second session with our Primary School students. Unfortunately, the weather did not turn out all that good and did get in the way of the session. However it has only be postponed. Instead we had a free fun lesson and got to get in on some of the action ourselves.
Recently we have been covering all the major aspects of what it means and what is involved with being a coach. Tayla and myself have been frequently checking websites and etc. to pick up tips or to see if there is anything we have missed regarding the coaching.
Recently we had a primary school teacher make a visit and inform us on the tips and hints we need to be coaches. Throughout the talk she made very clear hints and tips and left us with a much better idea on what we are doing and how to handle the students.The major tip she gave was be friendly, not their friend. It is important you make that very clear, otherwise you find the students becoming to close and taking things to far. The other tip she gave was to always wait after waiting a question. That way the students have time to process and think of an answer to your question
We have spent the last few lessons in Sport Coaching focusing on our final session plans and exactly how we want to run our session. We have worked out the exercises and gone into specific detail about each and every one. Tayla and myself have worked out what equipment and area we will use and have also researched some coaching skills to help us out on the day!
25th March – Period 3, Sport Coaching
Not long ago we had Coach Approach come out and educate us,
Then we visited the VIS – Victorian Institute of Sport, we met Katie (Hockey), Sarah (Netball) and Rick Wall, the marketing and communications man
Today we had our first coaching session with our Primary School Students. We started up with a warm up and then headed outside with our allocated group. Although the weather was a let down, the session seemed to go well. Throughout the session, we got various activities done. We started of with a basic exercise; standing in a circle and passing the ball back and forth and giving the idea on how it works and how to use the skill. We then set up some goals, and had the students practice and learn how to kick a goal with a simple and easy technique. To finish off, we had a game of number soccer, which the group seemed to have enjoyed.
Overall I would say the session was a success but there were however a few things I think we could improve on. The first thing would be who speaks when and what. I found that some coaches spoke over and over rid what another had said, leaving the students confused. Secondly, I think we could improve and keep an better eye on the time and really pick up our time management skills.

Wednesday 25th February 2015 Community Connections Program – Sport Coaching
Today in Sport Coaching, We focused on feedback; What it is, How it is delivered. We completed a brain storm on ‘What is Feedback” and distributed the following suggestions and ideas.
What is Feedback? Responding, Giving comments about progress, Providing constructive criticism, Sharing information to improve and etc.
Today’s lesson was helpful and provided a clear understanding as to what feedback is and has given us tips and points to help improve within ourselves.
