Coaches from all over the south of England came down to Eastbourne on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th November for day 1 and 2 of 4 full days of coach education.
England Boxing’s new revamp of the level one places an emphasis on the ability to coach as opposed to solely acquiring boxing subject knowledge.
The coaches are working towards several areas of coach delivery including building rapport, selling the skill, effective demonstration and explanation, observation techniques, generating feedback and making sessions fun and inclusive.
Using a variety of delivery methods to engage the boxers, once qualified, the coaches will be able to effectively support senior coaches in their gyms.
So far there has been a real team effort to support each other and help each other develop their skills through an open, reflective approach to coaching.
With this new approach from England Boxing towards coach education and the coaching pathway, not only should clubs begin to engage and retain more people in our sport but they will soon see the rise in the standard of grass roots boxing.
keep up the good work, guys. See you on day 3!
Report to follow shortly regarding the Level 2 run by Matt Bell held at East Brighton and it’s newly qualified coaches!
