Summer Lacrosse Camp 2019 – Introduction to Coaching Lacrosse
Introduction to Coaching Lacrosse (16+)
and Assistant Lacrosse Coach
(comparable to previous Level 1)
August 10th & 12th-16th
Take the next step and develop your skills from player to coach
The Introduction to Coaching Lacrosse is a one day, practical course, introducing participants to the role of a coach. The course is designed to teach the basic principles and theory behind coaching and educate on how to set up a safe, fun and engaging coaching session. There will be the opportunity to have a go at coaching and learn from peers and instructors. As well as the practical elements, participants will be expected to utilise online resources. This qualification allows participants to coach lacrosse alongside a more experienced coach.
While doing this course with us, we will be offering the further Chiswick Lacrosse certification of Assistant Lacrosse Coach within the price. This includes individual mentoring through the week, which will consolidate learning, provide opportunity to practice coaching and end with an assessment. Participants will then be qualified to coach small groups independently, though still under the direction and supervision of a more experienced lead coach.
We provide the training, mentoring, necessary experience and assessment day all within one week, enabling you to complete the qualifications within this short timeframe. Following successful completion of the award we do our best to also offer you employment in the final week (26th – 30th Aug).
