Hi, hope some body can help me, is there any requirement for a coach to cover psychological development as part of their role, whether a full time or volunteer coach, thanks
More and more we are discussing the importance of this type of training. At UK Coaching we talk about something called the 'C' System of coaching, which outlines our approach to holistic development through coaching sport and physical activity.
Also the Coaching Children 5-12 workshop covers this is some detail! The new Professional Standards for coaching children also refer to the need to understand development in this area also.
Hope this is useful
I would say a resounding yes, we all coach people and need to develop the whole person in our coaching. Many coaches will already do this within their coaching practice; for me it's about being more aware of this in our planning and considering this as a focus to the session and a approach to delivering the 'technical', 'tactical' and 'physical' aspects. Creating teachable moments to have quality conversations with the participants. Whether that is goal setting within a session or activity, introducing focus (and distractions to practice), using imagery or creating a physical puzzle or challenge that requires them to stick at it and show some resilience.
