The Youldon Group designed and led a coaching workshop on September 28 (check) in Fredericton, New Brunswick for the Fredericton Ringette Association.
Over 40 coaches attended and came from Moncton, Dieppe, Oromocto and, of course, Fredericton.
The session was magnificently hosted by Shawn Forster of the FRA.
After a brief needs assessment with potential participants, the agenda settled on the following topics;
– leading great drills;
– how to coach female ringette players, and;
Feedback was positive and coaches enjoyed the interactive nature of the workshop and the challenges placed on the participants. In addition, to learning and role playing as ringette athletes to understand team building techniques, coaches had to solve problems and interact in small groups. It helped New Brunswick ringette to bring together coaches, build a sense of community among coaches and help all participants to get focussed and ready to assume their coaching leadership roles for the coming season.
We used video examples of national calibre players in Canada with commentary and stop action in order to show typical tactical formations such as the triangle and the goalie ring breakout.
Here is what some of the participants said about the workshop
“Add information here… “
“ I learned that I did not know anything about coaching ringette”
“Great start to the new season and wonderful to connect with other coaches across New Brunswick”
The Youldon Group will be facilitating additional coaching development workshops in Vancouver and Kingston. Watch for additional workshops in your area.
