Intro To Coaching Session, 21 July

As part of our ongoing commitment to developing coaching within Scotland, we have arranged for the MSA ‘Introduction To Coaching’ course to be delivered to MSA and SACU club members on Saturday 21 July. The Introduction to coaching course is the first step on the MSA coaching pathway. It is not a qualification; it is - as it says on the tin - an introduction to coaching. Outlined below, is some information on the course.

What will I learn about?

The course provides an understanding of the coaching process and why it is important. Whilst discussions will be put into a motorsport context, please note that this course focusses on the science and art of coaching, over the technical skills and knowledge required to coach in motorsport.

During the course, participants will explore the following:

  • Roles and responsibilities of a coach
  • Preparation and planning
  • Underpinnings of sport skill
  • Principles of the skill development process
  • Coaching methods and simulated process
  • Health and safety
  • The sport sciences: hygiene and performance factors
  • Where next: Improving / developing your coaching

Who can take part?

The course is aimed at any MSA or SACU club member who has an interest in coaching. It is not necessarily just for those with a specific interest in becoming a motorsport coach either; whether you are an official looking to improve your coaching skills to help you mentor others in your team, a parent looking to understand the coaching process better so that you can best support your son and daughter in their motorsport activities or simply a competitor who is interested in becoming a coach, this course is ideally suited to you.

How Much does it cost?

This course is free. As part of our commitment to the development of coaching, Scottish Motor Sports and the MSA will be covering the cost of this course.

Location and Time

The course will be held at Blair Drummond Community Hall, near Stirling. The day will commence at 10:00 and will conclude at 17:00. A light Lunch will be provided.

How do I sign up?

Please email by Friday 13th July to confirm your place on the course. There are a limited number of spaces available on the course, which will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. Further details on the event will be released once you have signed up.
