Coaching Tips From Canada's National Team Coaches
On October 16th, 2014, His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, proclaimed 2015 as the Year of Sport in Canada. In light of the many exciting sporting events that will take place in Canada in 2015, the Coaching Association of Canada will publish, on #CoachTipTuesday, a weekly tip from one of our national team coaches pertinent to an upcoming or recent major sport event.
Below you'll find all the tips as we publish them. Some are sport-specific, to enhance your delivery of coaching in your sport, while some are holistic and intended to help you reflect on your coaching as a whole. Follow the CAC on Twitter and like our Facebook page for a new coach tip every Tuesday and the latest daily coaching news.
