Quality Coaching - Understanding, Informing and Developing Practice

The Quality Coaching series of four courses is designed specifically for coaches and HPE teachers to better understand the coaching process and the reasons they coach the way they do.  Coaching is a complex task and these courses explore the complexities and the influences on your current coaching practice.  Each course is a pre-requisite for subsequent courses in the series and focuses on how to coach and not what to coach.  The key to these courses is the fundamental notion that coaches are not simply subject matter experts applying systematic processes.  Performance coaches' work demands a dynamic, complex and multifaceted approach. Personal variables such as values, interests and attitudes play an important role in the coaching process. Each  course uses reflective tasks based on case studies from some well known and successful Australian coaches to examine your current coaching practice.

CPDQC6020  COACH-ATHLETE PERFORMANCE RELATIONSHIP

 Course Description: You are probably a coach because you have had positive experiences in sport - many athletes express their love for their sport and engagement out of sheer enjoyment and fun.  But many have negative experiences.  Much of this experience depends on the learning that occurs. The coach is central to the potential of sport to contribute towards participants' positive development.  The social nature of sport involves a myriad of interactions with many people, and as such, coaches must be responsive to the different reasons behind why people engage in sport. 

This course commences with a reflection on coaching philosophy and values and why this is so important to practice. It uses case studies of prominent Australian coaches to underpin this reflective activity.

introduction to athlete learning
expectancy theory
