Squash New Zealand's nationally developed, regionally delivered CoachForce programme uses a network of trained CoachForce (officers and facilitators) to go out and develop, support and motivate club and school coaches so they are able to provide their athletes and participants with fun, safe and quality squash experiences.
The CoachForce network play a crucial role not just in the initial formal training of coaches but also in the way coaches are informally educated, supported and nurtured ‘on the job’. This includes running coach learning and extension modules, as well as providing programme setup support, coordinating regional workshops and being available to watch, observe and listen.

By sending the questionnaire to your coach database, you can get feedback on what modules your coaches want to upskill in and the most suitable times to schedule coaching workshops.
