Coaching can be one of the most rewarding things you can do and taking your first step on your journey to becoming a coach is still possible even with Covid-19 restrictions in place.
Yachting New Zealand have been running online learn to sail coach courses since 2020 and the next one starts on Monday, October 25. This is ideal for those stuck in lockdown or in a region that makes it difficult to get to a course in person.
It's also the most flexible option if a club has less than four coaches in a region interested in being certified, and is great for those who either struggle to fit it into their schedule or find it difficult to meet the cost of being away for a weekend.
The next course runs over three evenings - October 25, October 27, and October 29 (7pm-9pm) - and there's also an on-water assessment component that can be completed at your home club when your regional development manager is in town.
Registrations close on Friday so see here for more details and information on how to register. You can also contact Yachting New Zealand coach development manager Peter Soosalu at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions.
