Top advice for sports coaches
Herts Coach Education Week
COPY and steal everything then adapt it for yourself, is key advice for budding coaches out there from an award winning Hertfordshire coach.
With Coach Education Week 2012 taking place in the county between February 11-19 there will be plenty of opportunity to do just that. Herts Phoenix Athletic Club’s Cathy Walker was handed that advice when she began.
“It is a tip that was given to me when I first started coaching and has proved invaluable,” she said.
“Take advantage of all courses, workshops, and opportunities offered to shadow or work with other coaches – even if you don’t like them or agree with them there’s always something that you can learn and use.”
