The ALA is pleased to announce that we will be running another Club Coach Course online so you can update your coaching skills and knowledge from the comfort of your own home, anywhere in the country.
The course, which will be presented by Sean Aaron, Lacrosse Victoria Operation Officer and current Australia Squad Member, will be delivered across 3 separate nights over 3 weeks. Coaches will need to attend all 3 sessions (which will go for approx. 1.5 hours) and complete tasks before and after each session to be able to complete their accreditation. The dates set aside for the webinars are 24th, 31st of August and the 7th September 2020.
As the course content will be delivered via webinars and other web base platforms, to make the course more interactive, participants will be required to use either multiple devices or be able to flick between multiple browsers to fully participate in the course.
At this point in time we are asking for expression of interest from coaches who would like to take part in this course which will assistance with our planning. The ALA will require 10 coaches for this course to go ahead.
The Club Coach course will provide coaches with ideas for training, introduce coaches to the principles of coaching including some basic advice on communication, people management and coaching ethics.
If you have any questions please email the ALA on – firstname.lastname@example.org
