You may already be a coach at the community level, or you are thinking about coaching. Often, you are a parent whose child is involved in sport, or a volunteer who works with participants of all ages that are new to a sport.
There is one level of workshops for community sport coaches: Initiation (or introduction). (18-hour workshop)
The Community Sport Initiation context focuses on participants who are being introduced to a sport. In many sports this is very young children participating in the sport for the first time. In a few sports, initiation into the sport can occur with youth or adults. Participants get involved to meet new friends, have fun, and to learn a new activity. The role of the coach is to ensure a fun and safe environment and to teach the development of some of the “FUNdamentals” stage skills and abilities for participants.
