Coaching Children 5-12 Workshop

Coaching Children 5-12 Workshop


This workshop incorporates the latest research on essential topics that are intrinsic in the coaching of children between the ages of 5 and 12. This is an exciting chance for you to reconsider the emphasis of your coaching and enhance the experience of your young participants. The material will be delivered in a practical way to provide you with all the innovative techniques and cutting-edge information you need to become a more effective coach. 


To help you understand how your coaching fits into a much wider agenda than sport, you will:

  • Learn a mix of traditional and contemporary models of coaching based on the development of participants’ technical, tactical, physical, mental and social competencies
  • Take a detailed look at the ‘C’ system of coaching to equip you with new tools to improve your soft and personal skills.
  • Be introduced to the principles of Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU).
  • Learn fun and innovative practical techniques for keeping children engaged to blend with the pioneering academic theory.


You will receive a copy of the comprehensive 64-page book Coaching Children 5-12: The Next Generation at the workshop to guide you in your future coaching.
