British Eventing Coaches Day

British Eventing Coaches Day

Tuesday 27 February 2024 at The Unicorn Trust, Netherswell Manor, Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire, GL54 1JZ

How do you as a High Performing Coach manage the challenges a Grassroots rider faces?

Put aside what you know and join Marie Ryan, Sally McGinn, Pauline Norton and Sam York to look at coaching techniques and how High Performing Grassroot Coaches manage the challenges a grassroots rider comes across on their journey.

The Coaches Day aims to be a highly educational and interactive day for all. Whether you are a coach, rider or would like an insight into coaching, this will be a huge learning day with lots of interaction and discussion.

  • Marie’s session will kick start the day with a discussion focusing on how the coach needs to self reflect/look after themselves, the importance of body language and feedback.
  • Sally follow’s on from Marie and will deliver a session around the adaptability of behaviours and mindsets and how they play a role in performance and in different coaching environments
  • Pauline will conclude the morning classroom sessions with a presentation on comparing and identifying behaviours of a high performing coach in grassroots riders participation and competitive environments, making sessions inclusive, creative and person-centred.
  • Sam will demonstrate a skilful interactive session using minimal equipment across a range of riders to show exercises to support in a fun way. The sessions will show how to adapt and recognise empowerment, pressure principles, empathy and support a coach during delivery.

Learning Objectives
To create high performing coaches within grassroots adult and young person environments to provide a range of skill sets
