What is a Community Coaching Course?
Because of the nature of the coach and the player in the Community context, these courses focus almost exclusively on the ‘Training’ pillar of the Coaching Expertise Model. Community Pathway courses are specifically designed for the coaches who look after Participation players: the courses are short, easily-accessible and low-cost.
