Coaching Portfolio : Professional Practice
This module seeks to develop the students to be reflective coaches. It seeks to set the foundation whereby students will reflect on their motivations to pursue the sport coaching profession and thereby develop their own coaching philosophy to serve as a beacon in their professional practice. They will base their reflections on appropriate learning theories or conceptual frameworks in the profession of sport coaching. Accordingly, they will also reflect on their journey through sport, how sport has made an impact to their lives and how they will, in turn, seek to impact the lives of others through sport. Beyond that, students will also be challenged to consider sport safety, safe sport issues, as well as how they may work in collaboration other stakeholders in the sport ecosystem to contribute to the growth of the sport industry.
Coaching Portfolio : Pedagogy
Sport Coaching is about teaching athletes not only to acquire competencies in sport skills, but also to develop character and values in their athletes through sport. Students will apply what they have learned from the Modular Certificate in Coaching Pedagogy to design and deliver coaching sessions. Students will be challenged to adapt and apply the concepts appropriately to cater to clients of different needs or profiles, which may include children, adults, seniors, competitive athletes, recreational athletes, or para athletes. In addition, they will learn to apply the fundamentals of sport science in their planning and delivery of sessions.
Coaching Portfolio : Sport Science
Good sport coaches leverage on sport science and technology to better inform their planning and practice. Students will leverage on what they have learnt from the Modular Certificates relating to sport science and apply them to design programmes to support athlete development. These can be in the areas of injury prevention, exercise rehabilitation, sport psychology, and/or performance analysis. Relating to this, the students will also be challenged to design diagnostic or analytical assessments with a battery of tests that are relevant to the athletes they are trying to help.
