WRS Coach Education Department offers the Community Coach Certification courses. which does not focus on teaching coaches how to play the game, so much as preparing coaches to impart their knowledge more efficiently and effectively to the players that they work with on a daily basis.

 

Just because a coach has excellent technical skill or a wealth of playing experience, does not necessarily mean that they can convey their knowledge to a willing athlete in an effective manner. Consequently, if a coach wishes to become truly successful at what they do, it is important that they acquire the skills required of a successful teacher and leader.
