1 Who are coach developers?
You’ll start by hearing from two coach developers discussing their own experiences.
To introduce this section, watch the video with Lucy Moore and Stuart Armstrong where they reflect on aspects they wish they had known more about at the outset of their experience as coach developers.
There are three points that can be taken from the discussion:
- Knowing the range of ‘tools’ that coach developers can use to help coaches.
- Not being too eager to ‘step in’ and start giving advice before understanding the needs of the coach and what they want.
- That coach developers don’t have all the answers and instead should be helping coaches to reflect and discover knowledge and ideas for themselves.
