To celebrate Canada’s 150th, the Coaching Association of Canada is offering Coaching Athletes with a Disability training free of charge throughout 2017!
The Coaching Athletes with a Disability eLearning module provides coaches the knowledge and training to deliver quality, positive sport experiences for athletes with behavioural, intellectual, physical, and sensory disabilities. It is a beneficial resource for coaches who are new to coaching athletes with a disability. However, coaches who are already working with athletes with a disability may also find it useful.
Coaching Athletes with a Disability training will provide coaches the ability to:
- Explain the benefits of sport participation for persons with a disability;
- Communicate effectively and respectfully with, and regards to, persons with a disability;
- Design positive, safe, and inclusive sport experiences for persons with a disability; and
- Consider next steps in their professional development related to coaching persons with a disability.
