Netball Otago offer a wide range of NNZ accredited coaching modules for all level coaches across the whole of the Otago Region.
Modules that we encourage our coaches to start with are:
TOINC - Taking Off Into Netball Coaching
This module must be completed by ‘new’ or inexperienced coaches, before any others are started. It is a self directed, inter-active learning module and takes approximately 40minutes to complete and looks at various aspects of being a coach. A link to this module is available at the bottom of the home page of Netball New Zealand’s MyNetball website:http://www.mynetball.co.nz/component/content/article/202.html. Coaches are asked to print the on-line certificate of completion and place this in their Coaching Toolkit for future reference.
SOIC - Starting Out In Coaching
This module works through the Coaching Toolkit resource folder. It provides opportunities for coaches to share ideas and learn more about running training sessions during the season, structuring warm-ups, skill sessions, tactical components and also introduces TGfU ideas. Participants work together to familiarise themselves with their Toolkit resource, and facilitate TGfU activities from the toolkit that are relevant to their coaching communities.
PCC - Player Centred Coaching
Pre-requisites for this module are TOINC and SOIC. Please note: Coaches who have 5+years of experience or who have completed their L2 or 3 in the previous NNZ Accreditation system are exempt from this pre-requisite requirement. They are however, encouraged to attend the PCC module regardless of their experience.
This module explores TGfU in more detail than the previous SOIC module. Participants also look at leadership styles and effective use of questioning as they design and coach a TGfU activity with the rest of the group. This module is the pre-requisite for all other modules.
Where to next?
After completing TOINC, SOIC and PCC modules, coaches can choose which modules they wish to do, and in which order they would like to do them. Some modules have pre requisites other than PCC, e.g. Attack 1 must be done before Attack 2. In all cases the maximum number of participants per module is 15 due to the nature of the group-work.
