The Introduction to Coaching course (ITCC) is aimed at giving people with little background knowledge in athletics the ability and confidence to coach basic level athletics to children. The course is great for parents or older brothers and sisters who want to know a little bit more about the sport and how to coach children, and to assist in training at Centre level. The sessions include both theory and practical elements.
Officials / Parent helpers are very important to the effective functioning of Centre weekly competition. There are a large number of different roles and positions that need to be filled at each competition, some require technical knowledge and experiences, whilst others are basic and only require a limited understanding of athletics.
The seminars include all events in Track & Field, combining rules with the practical application of them, along with the important aspects of safety, venue set up, recording results and handling equipment.
Seminars include theory & practical sessions outlining the basic requirements to become a competent starter at Centre level. Sessions covering rules, technique and safety are included. Sessions generally run for approximately 2 1/2 hours at venues throughout Victoria.
The entire On Track program and all of the training sessions have been designed so that each and every session is formatted into a developmental sequence. The progressive elements of the skills are introduced and reinforced throughout the program. The On Track program focuses on the fundamental motor skills, all the way through to the athletic skills. The program has 5 Levels. Each level has skills and each skill has techniques. As the skill is learnt, it is developed further and further until the final athletic skill has been developed.
If you are interested in learning more please consider undertaking one of the introductory courses or asking one of the Centre Committee member for further details.
