NS Coaches Offered the Opportunity to Help Shape Coaching in the Region

August 24, 2017 -- Increasing coach success and athlete experience is a key focus of the sport leadership community. The Canadian Sport Centre Atlantic (CSCA) is asking for feedback and input to help shape the future direction of coaching in the province.

“If we think of all Nova Scotian athletes – no matter your sport, your age, your ability, or your level - the single biggest factor in the quality of that experience is coaching,” says Natasha Burgess Johnson, ChPC, Coaching Lead with the CSCA. “Our coaches at all levels do an exceptional job. We want to develop strategies to better support these (predominantly) volunteers, provide more training opportunities, share best practices, and celebrate excellence so the experience can be even stronger.”

Feedback will be received through in person, stakeholder consultations. Based on the collective feedback, each region will develop a new strategy that will be rolled out in the fall. Coaches from all sports/levels are strongly encouraged to attend the free two-hour consultation closest to you:
