Coaches are a valuable asset throughout the community and at Glenfield College we want to assist and support our coaches in as many ways as we can. The Coach Support Initiative (CSI) is a KiwiSport project aimed at providing support and opportunities to school coaches to ensure development and retention from season to season. CSI enables schools to provide development strategies to enhance the delivery of sport at the school. By focussing on coaching culture within Glenfield College it is hoped coaches will feel supported and valued, and therefore look forward to continue coaching at the school.
Glenfield College implements the CSI project through the employment of a Coach Leader whose role is to support the coaches in a variety of ways, such as:
- Coach development
- Student Coach development
- Resource sharing of best coaching practice
- Assistance with funding for coach education
- Recognition of coaches time and effort
The project wants to work with and around individual needs for the development of each coach.
If you have any questions about this position or about coaching at Glenfield College please don’t hesitate to contact our Coach Leader Rebecca Beattie: [email protected]
It is important that all the coaches within the school understand our philosophies and expectations around sport. It is also important to understand each role within the team and necessary procedures. Attached is the coaching handbook with all the important information for coaches about sport at Glenfield College.
