Course Description: (1 Day - 9 hour training program) This Diploma is a valuable and necessary one for many coaches. The material in this course is designed to assist the coach who has been asked to step up for the first time to coach a team in competition. The course is, in part, conducted in the classroom covering the role of the coach, methodology and player development. The field portions of the course cover a variety of helpful training ideas primarily designed to improve technical ability. The field work also shows coaches a variety of small sided games to use and features a sample session conducted by the instructor.
Participants should wear comfortable clothes and sneakers for the practical part of the training.
Coaches – Please review the Field Set up schedule. This will show which team is responsible to set the field up for the weekend and which team is to put the equipment away.
Basically, when you set the field up you go into the shed, take out 4 corner flags, and put them on the field. You should also make a First Aid kit available at mid-field for both teams to access. Some of the field have collapsible benches. You can set those up for BOTH teams. The last team on the field just needs to put everything back in the shed.
