Delivering great sessions for participants through creative coaching - Sport Wellington 

In the third installment of our Coaching through COVID-19 webinar series, we're going global and getting creative as we think about how to deliver great sessions for participants through creative coaching; and Russell Earnshaw from the UK’s Magic Academy is joining us to do just that.

The webinar will cover:

  • Learning environments
  • Practice design
  • Coaching craft – coaching individuals (making it individual), co-coaching
  • Gamification – principles to take games-based training to the next level

This webinar is about sharing practical ideas and tools that will help you enhance your coaching.

It is open for all coaches across the play, active recreation and sport sector.

Russell is recognised as a pioneer in the adoption of the ‘gamification’ philosophy to sports coaching. His organisation has developed a number of resources to help coaches around the world understand how to develop great sessions that support participant learning and development through gaming.
