Applications open for Development Coach Advance Programme

Wednesday, January 16, 2019

Are you a development coach looking to build effective and sustainable coaching practices in a fun and collaborative environment? Applications are now open for Sport Bay of Plenty's Development Coach Advance Programme (DCA).

The 10 month DCA programme is for developing coaches from any sport. Feedback from past and present participants is that the programme has added significant value to their current coaching practices.


The guiding philosophy of the DCA programme is “As coaches, we ask our athletes to change and grow (be continuous learners), so as coaches we should expect this of ourselves." The programme is not an award where one passes or fails. Rather the aim is to develop and inspire coaches to become continuous learners for life.

The key priorities of the 10 month programme are:

  • OPPORTUNITIES – to create opportunities for coaches to continuously learn
  • CONNECTIONS – to develop and enhance collaboration between Bay of Plenty coaches
  • CAPABILITY – to grow confidence and capabilities of coaches so that they can provide effective and sustainable coaching practices
  • COACH FOCUSED – to ensure that the coach is at the heart of their continuous learning journey.

If you'd like to find out more about the DCA programme, or apply, then head to the DCA webpage below.
