Isle of Man Sport’s popular Coaches Breakfast Club is set to begin its second year.
Providing a platform for coaches to share their knowledge and experiences in sport, the relaxed and friendly gathering will continue to help coaches to learn valuable lessons while enjoying a free breakfast and a cup of tea.
Trevor Christian, Sports Coaching Coordinator for Isle of Man Sport, said:
'We have developed a good following of coaches at the breakfast events. They offer insights into many aspects of sport such as early specialisation, recruiting and retaining coaches, and managing groups of mixed ability athletes, to name just a few.'
Trevor was keen to impress that coaches lead the way:
'It’s their club, so the topics covered are driven by them either in the format of an individual coach-led session with a focal speaker or as a more open forum discussion where the whole group decide on the agenda.'
'Using local sports clubs as venues for the Breakfast Club is a crucially important element. We want to take these events right into the heart of local sporting communities in familiar environments where coaches work.'
Having covered the four corners of the Island, the Breakfast Club returns to the east and will be hosted by Douglas Rugby Club. Taking place on Saturday 7 July the session will open promptly at 8am finishing no later than 10am.
All coaches are welcome to come along, all they need to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org to book their space and give suggestions on some coaching related topics they would like to discuss on the day.
Isle of Man Sport continues to bring a wide variety of CPD events to help develop the Island’s coaches. More information is available via the Isle of Man Sport Coaches Forum on Facebook with details of the latest course announcements.
