What are the ideal attributes for a foundation coach?

  • Nurture a love of sport and active recreation

  • Focus primarily on fun, participation and skill development

  • Understand the needs of young participants in the Learn Stage – primarily primary school age children

  • Encourage multiple sports and skills

What are the challenges?

  • Lack of information and data regarding the coaches

  • As a consequence it’s hard to contact the coaches

  • The coaches have limited time

  • The coaches have limited knowledge

  • There is an element of fear – lack of confidence

  • Seen more as a parent helper rather than coach

  • Low retention rate
