This course consists of three modules:  Teaching and Learning, Design a Basic Sport Program and Basic Mental Skills.

Upon completing the Teaching and Learning module you will be able to:

·       assess your own beliefs regarding effective teaching;

·       analyze certain coaching situations to determine if they promote learning;

·       create conditions that promote learning and self-esteem through:

o    appropriate consideration of the affective, cognitive and motor dimensions of learning;

o    the use of words and methods that relate to an athlete’s preferred learning style;

o    a sound organization;

o    active supervision; and

o    the use of well-formulated feedback offered at the right time and with the right frequency.

·       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.


Design a Basic Sport Program module, 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; and

·       establish a link between your program’s training objectives and the content of practice sessions.


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; and develop tools to help the athlete to make improvements in these areas; and

·       run simple guided activities that help athletes improve basic mental skills.
