Coaches in the Competition stream usually have previous coaching experience or are former athletes in the sport. They tend to work with athletes over the long term to improve performance, often in preparation for provincial, national, and international competitions.
There are three levels of workshops for competition coaches that reflect the stages of athlete development: Introduction, Development, and High performance.
(For more information on long-term athlete development, please click here.)
The Competition – Introduction context is designed for coaches of athletes moving from the FUNdamentals to the Learn to Train and Train to Train stages of long-term athlete development.
TheCompetition – Development context is designed for coaches of athletes ranging from the Train to Train to the Train to Compete stages of long-term athlete development.
The Competition – High performance context is typically reserved coaches of athletes in the Train to Win stage of long-term athlete development although there is the possibility of some phasing in of a Train to Compete athlete into the High Performance level because of the fluidity of the stages of long-term athlete development. Coaches in this stream require specific skills and abilities in order to meet the needs of their athletes.
