Club and Foundation Coaching Course

WA Squash will be running a Club Development Coaching course on 12 and 13 December 2020 and a Foundation Coaching Course on 12 December at Belmont Squash Club.

Club Development: This coach is competent to plan, conduct and evaluate a range of training programs suitable for the diverse range of ages and abilities found among registered Club or Centre players. A Club Development Coach must plan and supervise training to best prepare players of different ages, abilities and competition goals to achieve their potential.

Foundation Coach: This coach is qualified to deliver basic training sessions that develop the squash technique of novice and junior players – this is generally defined as players 12-years and under who are still acquiring the skills needed to compete successfully. The coach may work independent of any supervision as they are fully qualified to provide such instructional training. Coaches at this level are also encouraged to work with older players (i.e. to gain valuable ‘on-the job’ training), but only as an ‘assistant coach’ under the supervision of a coach with appropriate qualifications.

Both courses require online prerequisites to be completed and will have some post course hours to complete.

Should you be interested in attending or require further information please email Sue Hillier at by Friday 13 November 2020.
