Coaches and Umpires across New South Wales will have new opportunities for development in 2014 with the introduction of the Netball NSW NetEd Coach & Umpire on Court Workshops.
The new workshops will support the existing accreditation frameworks by delivering three-hour educational workshops designed for coaches and umpires at a beginner level, as well as workshops aimed specifically at development level (or higher).
Coaches on Court
The Coaches on Court program consists of nine workshops, five which are open to coaches of all levels and four aimed at development or higher level coaches. Each workshop will explore in depth netball skills, providing coaches with an opportunity to analyse the theory and practical requirements. The workshop will take place in a practical setting allowing for coaches to view activities, coaching behaviours and techniques in real time.
Umpires on Court
The Umpires on Court program consists of two workshops which will explore the skills required to coach beginner umpires and the simple methods used to test umpires.
Associations can apply now to host these workshops in 2014.
