Coaches Breakfast – Grassroots Coaching

These were the questions asked of coaches at the recent Mid West Coaches Network Breakfast.

Steven Broberg, WACA Regional Cricket Officer, facilitated the session for around 20 coaches from a range of different sports. The coaches were able to share ideas with each other and discuss the questions posed to them.

It was then discussed what this means for coaches and how they coach. Steve used a soccer example to demonstrate the coaches role in different age groups. Some common coaching characteristics that emerged were:

-          The use of games

-          Teaching through play

-          Teaching by encouragement   

To finish with Steve showed the below video which is well worth watching.
