CoachForce 2020 – contact list

The purpose of CoachForce is to provide coaching workshops to up-skill coaches/teachers and parent coaches (not children!) to run more effective training sessions, gain more confidence and become better coaches by learning new skills that are appropriate for the children’s age and experience level.

We recommend that your school adopt a policy under which school sports fees are raised by $2-4 per child to cover the cost of up-skilling all coaches.
