What it is:

Learn-2-coach is based on the principle that the “how to do’ skills rather than the ‘what to do skills’ make the critical difference between good coaches and great coaches” (Dent and Reynolds: The Tennis Coach’s Toolkit)

It is a suite of 20 modules each focusing on a key coaching skill:

  • How to build rapport
  • How to keep sessions fun
  • How to keep participants safe
  • How to explain
  • How to provide demonstrations
  • How to observe
  • How to analyse & make decisions
  • How to provide feedback
  • How to enhance learning
  • How to teach skills
  • How to question and listen
  • How to set and negotiate goals
  • How to plan and prepare
  • How to organise and be organised
  • How to promote high values
  • How to select & use coaching strategies
  • How to manage behaviour
  • How to coach children
  • How to include participants with different impairments
  • How to evaluate your coaching

How it works:

Coaches are able to work at their own pace through selected modules
which include:

  • video analysis
  • activities to aid application to their own coaching
  • tasks to aid self reflection
  • action planning to develop their practice
  • opportunities to generate evidence and support assessment
