WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BECOME A COACH?


Coaches come from all walks of life – parents, teachers, ex-athletes, and sports fans. They share a common passion for softball and sharing that passion with others. Coaches want to do more than simply cheer from the bleachers. They want to have a direct impact on others, helping them learn, grow, gain self-confidence, and develop life skills along the way. But being a coach means much more than just teaching athletes how to participate in sport. As a coach, you assume the role of trainer, assessor, friend, mentor, facilitator, adviser, supporter, motivator, counsellor, organizer, and planner. Most importantly, you will get to see first hand the positive impact you’ll make on others, watching them learn and grow as individuals. To sum up, becoming a coach allows you to help others reach beyond themselves in both sport and life.

WHERE CAN I LEARN NEW COACHING SKILLS?


If you’re interested in expanding your coaching skill set further, the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) offers a full range of education and training programs.  You can take a single course, or follow a longer term certification pathway. The AMFA is hosting a Community Sport – Ongoing Participation course this spring for Squirt A/B/C, PeeWee B/C, Bantam, and Midget C coaches. This is a 2 day course that runs from 8:15 am – 4:30 pm on Saturday April 2 and Sunday April 3. There is no cost for current AMFA coaches. The cost is $150 for Non-AMFA coaches. Contact the AMFA Director of Coach Development at coach@amfa.ca to sign up!
