Competition Coach (2-day or approx. 14 hours – $184.80 including taxes) Prepares coaches to work with intermediate and competitive level athletes. This is a streamlined workshop with the technical and theory being offered in one weekend (or 2 days) by Curl BC Learning Facilitators. No prerequisite is required. It is recommended that you have previous coaching experience or are a former athlete in the sport of curling. Learn about:
- teaching and learning strategies, tactics, delivery & brushing skills
- making ethical decisions
- emergency action plans
- skill analysis & drills to correct faults
- practice planning
- competition planning
The steps towards full certification of Competition Coach are as follows: Following the 2-day Competition Coach workshop registrants will be required to complete an online Making Ethical Decisions module through the Coaches Association of BC (CABC). Click MED Process & Troubleshooting for more information on the Making Ethical Decisions module. Workshop registrants will also be evaluated while they lead a one hour on-ice practice, having prepared and submitted the necessary paperwork. Have you completed a Competition Coach Workshop but need to finish the process by completing your evaluation? To schedule an evaluation please contact Will Sutton.Register for a coach workshop by clicking the appropriate link in the table at the top of this webpage. Competition Coach On-Ice EvaluationIf your club or region has coaches who completed their Competition Coach training through a workshop but need to complete their certification by completing an on-ice practice evaluation, consider booking an “evaluation day” where Curl BC will have an evaluator on-site to evaluate and certify those coaches. As there is preparation required by coaches for the on ice evaluation, contact Will Sutton for more information.Note: Individual coaches may also book evaluations directly through Will. Once fully certified, this coach will be eligible to coach at playdowns, provincials, nationals & at the BC Winter Games.
