Certifications with Inclusive Sports Coaching
John Lonergan discovered there were several areas within his areas of expertise that were lacking in regard to focused Training Modules and/or Industry Certifications.
Therefore as a way to pass on his knowledge and experience to others, and provide some formal recognition to people who have taken the time to learn and grow as sports coaches or support staff, several training courses have been created.
It is envisaged that these Certifications will be used to support and augment other Training provided by Peak Sporting Bodies and Disability Associations, and help elevate the overall quality of Coaching and Support given to athletes.
Coaching Players with Autism or a Disability
Inclusive Sports Coaching will provide Coaching courses to supplement your sport specific accreditations. For example you may have a Community Level Coaching Accreditation for Cricket from Cricket Australia. We believe it would be beneficial to supplement that with specific learning for coaching players with an Intellectual Disability. There are specific skills and communication methods required to be the best coach you can be for players with a Disability or from a Disadvanted background, and these skills are often not covered in the critical but generic Coaching Accreditations provided by the peak sporting bodies.
Community Cricket Coaching - Coaching Athletes with an Intellectual Disability - Only $7 !!
This Course can also be delivered Face to Face in Adelaide at a Club, at a Cost of $150 for up to 15 participants.
