What is 'New Age' Coaching?

Friday, October 26, 2018 - 1:49 PM

The ‘new age’ Coach, is more than a theory, it is a way of life and one we as community coaches and participants of our great game at the grassroots level should do what we can to adopt. Athlete centred coaching is what works best for our players, as well as for adult participants of the game.

Encouragement, fun, understanding and empathy are all great ways of engaging our children and the players we coach, not only to benefit their love of the game and getting outside, but that’s how we get out players to engage with skill development and overall retention.

If you are a coach or club official who would like more information about athlete centred coaching or the ‘new age’ coach, please don’t hesitate to contact the Metro North Coach Coordinator Wes Moran at wmoran@wafc.com.au.
