CoachForce is all about 'coaching the coaches'. The CoachForce network (also called coach developers or facilitators) 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. 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 (where required) with Sport New Zealand's Coach Developer Training programme and aligns with international best practice in coach delivery and development.
