Thirty Open-minded attendees *14 forward thinking provinces represented (with apologies from 5). The 3 days from this year’s conference could be summarised by three key statements:
1. Developing coaches of coaches and developing people
2. Caring for people’s first encounter with the sport and the province
3. Big and small collaborations/focuses to ensure win-wins for all
Over the weekend all attendees looked to extend themselves, their capabilities, and knowledge within a supportive, fun, relative, and collaborative approach.
Some of the areas that added real meaning to the weekend included: Touch NZ Frameworks/Strategies/Pathways; Community coaching focuses; Coaching Pathways; Coach Developer/Facilitator Skills; Practical Delivery Opportunities; Delivery Techniques; Observation and Feedback Processes (REVIEW Process); Understanding Self; and Future Planning and Goals.
