CoachForce (coaching the coaches)

Ensuring best practice in the facilitation of coach development is important in developing and delivering a quality experience for our squash community. Squash New Zealand recognises the important value of its CoachForce network (also called coach developers) who 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.

Squash CoachForce Approach

To maintain and improve quality coach development opportunities, Squash New Zealand provides extra support, a special toolkit and advanced training in facilitation for the CoachForce network. This is supported with Sport New Zealand's Coach Developer Training programme and aligns with international best practice in coach delivery and development.

With special thanks to the NZ Community Trust
