[Coaching CPD] Coach Forum: 'Girls' Ultimate'

Submitted by Chesca Tyler Weddell on Tue, 21/01/2020 - 12:11pm
Event date: 
6 Feb 2020 - 19:30 - 21:00
Event details: 

This is 1-2 hour online event.

UKU Coach forums are designed as an opportunity for coaches, leaders or players to come together and discuss a topic. The format will generally follow an introductory presentation followed by an opportunity for participants to pose questions, discuss their own experiences and learn from others. 

The Girls' Ultimate Coach Forum is an opportunity to talk around the topic of how as a community we can develop more opportunities for girls to play Ultimate. The session will look at the bigger context of girls in sport, consider successful campaigns and asks what should we do / what should we do differently.

In advance of the forum please consider these discussion areas:

Accessible opportunities - what might these look like? Do we have any examples to follow?

Empowerment and enjoyment - what gives girls a sense of empowerment and ownership? What makes it fun?

Confidence and motivation - confidence to get involved in the first place? what makes someone keep coming?

Being part of a team - how do you create this from the start?

Coaching - what do girls need?

Please come prepared with any other questions and ideas you'd like to discuss with others.

The session is open to anyone keen to learn how to teach others, whether that be in the role of coach, captain or player. The emphasis will be on developing coaching skills and understanding, not on developing individual playing skills.

Are you tired of seeing your players get beaten on open-side unders? This clinic is about teaching players a complete model of match defence that everyone from beginners to competitive club level can benefit from. It will cover the physical skills players need to develop as well as the techniques and decision-making processes they need to employ to effectively play an adaptable and flexible form of match defence.

Please wear kit appropriate for a sports hall and bring water, lunch, and pen & paper.
