Description

This course provides further application of sport coaching theory to practice. Students will plan, implement and evaluate aspects of coaching pedagogy, sociology and sport science while coaching their selected sport. This occurs during coaching sessions with an Under 15 team, throughout a season of practices and interschool or club games/events.

In the second year coaching practicum courses students can work in pairs or alone to coach teams under the age of 15 years around the Canterbury area.
As juniors are the base of our sport participants, we endeavour to provide the community with quality coaches in the aid of junior development.
To develop coaching skills and critical thinking, students are required to perform self-reflective analysis of their coaching.

Evaluation

Students will be asked to complete course and teacher evaluations, using the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring surveys.  Survey responses are conducted electronically and are confidential. The Faculty of Education will conduct regular graduate surveys.

Grade moderation

All course assessments in the Bachelor of Sport Coaching are internally moderated.  A sample of your work may be used as part of this moderation process. Regular examiners meetings monitor the distribution of final grades in courses and adjustments are made if necessary to ensure reasonable consistency and comparability of course grades.

Late submission of work

An assessment is late if it is handed in after the due date, without a formal extension.  If an assessment is submitted after the due date, 5% will be deducted from the final grade for every day the assessment is late.  No assessments will be accepted after a period of 3 days after the due date, unless an extension has been granted.
