Coach the Coaches 11/12 June

As part of our ongoing commitment to Instructor Development the National Yacht  club is hosting a Coach the Coaches course over the weekend of the 11/12 June with Thomas Chaix of Dinghy Performance.

Thomas will  introduce and develop “the coaching approach”.

The idea is to review a base knowledge the Coaches can apply with the view to progressing Performance and how to adjust it to their group. He will deal with a number of areas to include, equipment updates, off the water communication, safety, nutrition, fitness 

The weekend will also include shadow coaching. The course is open to all NYC instructors, especially those with an interest in performance coaching.

There will also  be a waiting list and we plan to organise more courses for those who are unable to sign up to this course.

Max 15 participants

Price €120
