Coaching Expertise - EDPN5014

Year - 2020

This unit examines the knowledge (professional, interpersonal and intrapersonal) and behaviours associated with coaching expertise. We explore strategies to develop athlete outcomes (competence, confidence, connection and character) in different sporting contexts and discuss the importance of coaching efficacy and emotional intelligence in responding to various coaching scenarios. The ability to evaluate one's performance is part of the coaching process. This unit will examine such questions such as: was the coaching effective in achieving its purpose(s)? What changes can be made to improve the quality of coaching? The coach has the responsibility of analysing coaching sessions to recognise strengths and address weaknesses to identify new levels of effectiveness. This unit will emphasise critical reflection and the development of skills and innovative techniques for assessing coaching effectiveness.
