My name is Jeff Mitchell, I am a Community Sport Advisor for Sport Auckland. My role is to develop sport coaches, clubs and volunteers, which I do through workshops, mentoring and written resources. I have also run my own sport coaching consultancy for the past 9 years – Premier Coaching Services Limited.
This blog discusses the various ways that coaches can develop and improve. The main messages is that coaches should grow – as coaches and as individuals – and that by doing so they will help their athletes to grow. We grow by challenging ourselves, by reflecting on what we do, by learning, and by setting and working towards goals. Every day is another chance to improve.
