The All About Heart sessions and handbook are designed to help Junior Secondary and Intermediate School Coaches. The programme was developed by Netball Bay of Plenty with support from the Ministry of Youth, Tauranga City Council and Sport Bay of Plenty. It provided young coaches not only with help to plan sessions and the season but also offers guidance with managing a team.
Sessions cover the three phases of defence, going for an intercept, team defence – working as a unit, movement, and being available on defence. Again sessions are designed so that they are easy for the coach to deliver with the team regardless of playing level.
Starting Out in Coaching; Player Centred ; Attack 1; and Defence 1 plus many, many more.
top 10 tips for coaches
Remember players are there because they enjoy the sport so always try and incorporate a fun element to your sessions
Remember to have fun yourself, players will relate to you better if they see your personality coming through in your coaching
It's important to build relationships with your players, take the time to get to know them as a player and also a person, it'll help you to understand how to get the best out of them as a player
Remember no-ones perfect, we all make mistakes, have the confidence to admit when you're wrong, learn from it and move on!
Never stop learning, none of us know everything there is to know about netball so try and always improve your coaching. This may be attending courses, sharing ideas with other coaches, having a mentor or just watching some games and try and put yourself in the shoes of the coach of that team, what would you do?
Plan for sessions but have the confidence to change them according to the needs of the players and situation of that session.
Try not to do the same thing, the players will get bored and so will you, it's better to try something new and it doesn't work than to keep doing the same old thing!!
Be confident, we all have something to give as a coach, you probably know more than you think you do!!
Provide opportunities for player input into trainings.
Allow players the time to discuss how they will do things as opposed to telling them. Yes it takes longer however the benefits for the individuals and team are ten fold
