Introduction to Coaching Workshop for our Development Athletes
Venue: Orange Farm – December 2012
Facilitator: Franz Studer (Facilitator for CGT)
We had 10 pupils from Diepsloot and Orange Farm who came for their first Coaching workshop in the sport
- Jan Ledwaba
- Thomas Taole (Level one TSA Coach)
- Clifford Dube
- Nkosinathi Khambule
- Mduduzi Mshibe
- Emmanuel Molapo
- Thabiso Peloeng
On the second day only three people could return, while the three Diepsloot people did not finish the first day because of the transport issues.
The workshop dealt with different topics on coaching like:
Planning sessions – calendar year
Organization – organizing of the sessions – events – equipments and tools
Communication – Reporting – Athletes
Safely – Athletes – Participants
Rules and regulations of the sport locally and internationally, not in detail especially the International part
Highlight – it was the first time most of the participants learnt about the coaching of the sport when some have been involved for the last 3 years, so it was a huge break through as far as AfrikaTikkun and Central Gauteng Triathlon are concerned
We will continue with these kind of workshops which will help the growth of the sport in the development of athletes in these communities.
Thank you Central Gauteng Triathlon, Franz Studer, AfrikaTikkun and Lotto for their support.
