Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation is delighted to confirm the launch of our ‘Trinity Coach Education’ programme for 2021.
The programme – designed by Wakefield Trinity Youth Staff – will look to develop and upskill local community coaches, running from May to November 2021 and will include seven workshops – led by our Performance team.
Topics will include Coaching Philosophies, Skill Development, Principles of Play and Strength & Conditioning.
Speaking upon the launch of the programme, Rugby league Development Manager, Josh Riding, voiced his pleasure surrounding the growing partnership with the club when it comes to coach education.
“We are delighted to finally roll out our brand-new Coach Education programme for 2021,” said Josh.
“We remain committed to developing our local coaches from community clubs and schools to help create more professional players from the region.
“The programme will allow coaches to develop and work with our full-time professional coaching staff to gain a further understanding of Rugby League.”
While, Mark Applegarth, Head of Youth Performance at Wakefield Trinity, followed, “We feel it is important we help community coaches across our district with their own education and development.
“The programme focuses on topics such as skill acquisition, development and how people learn, which should give coaches a better insight into how they plan their sessions and delivery.
“I am looking forward to working with coaches across the district and we aim to roll this out even further in 2022.”
