Positive Coaching Alliance
- Positive Coaching Alliance-
Positive coaching with their motto: Better athletes, better people.
This is what youth sports programs can and should produce. See how you and PCA together can help parents, coaches, athletes and leaders make Better Athletes, Better People a reality!
A valuable resources for me for many years. For example, I translated their script for coaches to use when addressing their teams to Dutch.
- Train Ugly-
Learn to train like a Jungle Tiger? Visit the Train Ugly website! I was already keen on the material of Carol Dweck, but Trevor delivered some great metaphors and make it much more presentable to players.
Lots of material like wallpapers, complete workshop documents and of course a great podcast series.
- LTAD Canada - Sport for Life-
The "Sport for Life" program works to create whole system change by:
- Creation of resources
- Educating, training, and mentoring
- Improving programming
In the Netherlands our NOC embraced the LTAD model to get the associated union organised their talent development programs. I still refer to their resources to guide me in my work with rugby clubs and their development programs. They now offer a comprehensive suite of services, programs and tools, the most famous one the LTAD model.
- World Rugby coaching section-
World Rugby has lots of resources for us coaches. When you enlist in the education plans of your union you will be part of this. But also without the formal education you have access to lots of resources. Passport is your gateway to the training and education web sites provided by World Rugby. Registering for a World Rugby Passport gets you access to online accreditation on a range of topics. Examples are law education, concussion protocols to physical preparation.
- Rugby Canada-
Canadian Rugby always look like they have their stuff sorted. I have been to Langford, a good example of what it takes. With USA Rugby growing rapidly it will be interesting to see how they will stay competitive in the future.
- The Rugby Site-
The Rugby Site has now a fantastic range of videos of all aspects rugby. Lots of famous coaches and players set-up this huge library of coaching material for you to browse.
New content is added weekly, sometime difficult to soak all up!
Well worth the investment.
