Supporting and Developing Student Coaches
Nuku Ora works closely with College Sport Wellington and a number of Regional Sports Organisations to deliver the Student Coaching Programme. Over the past 4 years, we have worked with over 30 different colleges and developed over 1,000 student coaches. The programme aims to;
- Increase the confidence and competence of secondary school student coaches
- Enable colleges and Regional Sports Organisations to provide ongoing support to student coaches
- Ensure more children and young people are staying in organised sport due to quality coaching and coaches providing a positive sporting experience.
Summer sports that will be covered in the February workshops are Volleyball, Touch, Futsal and Floorball. In May the winter sports will be covered: Netball, Basketball, Hockey, Football, Rugby, and other sports if there is demand for them.
If you want to get involved, talk to the Sports Coordinator at your school or email Tim Mannix, Community Development Advisor - Coaching, Nuku Ora on firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest or for more information.
