Design a Basic Sport Program (4 hours – Competition Introduction)

Design a Basic Sport Program will teach you to:

  • create a sound outline for your sport program that includes competition and training events;
  • compare your program to those outlined by the NCCP in terms of long-term athlete development;
  • assess the athletic development opportunities your program offers, and identify ways to remedy any weaknesses;
  • interpret the information in a sample program, identifying training priorities and objectives at certain periods;
  • establish a link between your program’s training objectives and the content of practice sessions.


Basic Mental Skills (3 hours – Competition Introduction)

The Basic Mental Skills module gives you the ability to:

  • recognize signs indicating that an athlete may need to improve his/her goal setting, focus, and anxiety control skills
  • develop tools to help the athlete to make improvements in the above areas
  • run simple guided activities that help athletes improve basic mental skills


Teaching and Learning (6 hours 30 minutes – Competition Introduction)

After completing the Teaching and Learning module you will be able to assess your own beliefs regarding effective teaching and analyze certain coaching situations to determine if they promote learning. You will discuss how to create conditions that promote learning and self-esteem through:

  • appropriate consideration of the affective, cognitive and motor dimensions of learning
  • the use of words and methods that relate to an athlete’s preferred learning style
  • a sound organization
  • active supervision
  • the use of well-formulated feedback offered at the right time and with the right frequency

You will also use teaching assessment grids to gather objective information on teaching effectiveness and use this data to develop an action plan to enhance your own effectiveness as a teacher and coach.
