                   Coaching Safe and Effective Sport.

                   ‘Sportscoach UK- Coaching Officer’.

                                Assignment Abstract

   The goal of any good sports coach is to maximise the potential of their
   performers, enabling all levels of athletes to achieve their potential. Throughout
   this process, coaches must ensure the health and safety of their participants,
   and be aware of the surrent Health and Safety legislation set by the
   Government.

   The role of the coach can be complex and involved, yet exciting and rewarding.
   Coaching will play a key role in the lead up to the 2012 Olympics, and it is
   important that the Government lead ‘UK Action Plan for Coaching’ becomes a
   focus during this time.

   Sportscoach UK is an organisation that has the responsibility for the
   development of coaches in this country. For this assignment you are to take on
   the role as a coaching officer for Sportscoach UK – spreading the gospel of
   good practice.

There are seven tasks that you will need to complete for this assignment:

                   TASK   1:   ‘What Make a Good Coach?’
                   TASK   2:   ‘Legally Safe’
                   TASK   3:    ‘Techniques to Improve Performance’
                   TASK   4:    ‘Risk Assessment’
                   TASK   5:   ‘Planning an Activity’
                   TASK   6:   ‘Leading an Activity’
                   TASK   7:   ‘Reviewing Your Coaching’
                    TASK 1: ‘What Makes a Good Coach?’
      Method of Assessment: A3 Poster

   Coaches have a variety of different roles and responsibilities; and use many different skills in
   order to get the best out of their performers.

          Within your office you need to display a poster which describes four roles, four
           responsibilities and three skills common to successful sports coaches. In order to
           complete this task, you should use a variety of coaches from different levels and
           different sports as examples of when these roles, responsibilities and skills are used.
                                                                                     Unit 4: P1, P2

                          To gain a higher grade you must:
                           o Explain the roles, responsibilities and skills.      Unit 4: M1, M2
                           o Compare and Contrast the roles, responsibilities and skills of
                              successful coaches from different sports.                 Unit 4: D1




Learning outcomes: Unit 4: 1


                            TASK 2: ‘Legally Safe’
      Method of Assessment: A Set of Hand Outs/ Information Leaflets

Before undertaking any kind of activity, it is important to know the legal implications of what you
are about to do. You have discovered that many coaches and young leaders are unaware of the
legislative factors that influence health and safety in sport.

As part of your role as ‘Coaching Officer’, you have been invited to The Canterbury High School to
help to ensure that all of the coaches within the various academies are aware of the legislation
surrounding their sports.

You must produce a set of hand outs or information leaflets which describe the legislative and legal
factors, and regulatory bodies that influence health and safety in sport. Examples of the sorts of
information you must include are:
    o Parliament Acts which govern health and safety, fire precautions and first aid in different
       settings
    o Legal factors encompassing ‘loco parentis’ and ‘duty of care’
    o Regulatory bodies such as local authorities, governing bodies and police
                                                                                     Unit 2: P1, P2
                                 To gain a Higher Grade you must:
                                  o Compare and contrast the influences of legislation, legal
                                       factors and regulatory bodies on health and safety in sport

                                                                                          Unit 2: M1


Learning Outcomes: Unit 2: 1
                TASK 3: ‘Techniques to Improve Performance’.
      Method of Assessment: Presentation.

As well as taking on many different roles, each coach will use a range of techniques to improve the
performance of their athletes. These techniques will vary according to the type of athletes they
are coaching.

PART A: Researching the Academies

At The Canterbury High School, we have a range of coaches in our academies that all use different
techniques to improve the performance of our athletes.

You should design a short questionnaire which you can use to find out which techniques each of the
academy coaches use. This should also include a section in which the coach can tell you which they
use most often, which they find most effective, and why.




PART B: Information Booklet

Using the information you have gathered, you must now produce a presentation which can be used
by other coaches like yourself who are keen to widen their use of techniques to improve
performance. Within this presentation you should include:

                  A description of Three different techniques that are used, by coaches, to
                   improve the performance of their athletes.                          Unit 4: P3




                  To gain a higher grade you must:
                          o Explain the three different techniques that are used to improve
                             performance.                                            Unit 4: M3

                           o   Evaluate three different techniques that are used to improve
                               performance.                                             Unit 4: D2




Learning outcomes: Unit 4: 2
                            TASK 4: ‘Risk Assessment’
           Method of Assessment: Risk Assessment & Supporting Report

With carrying out any activity comes risk. This may range from the very small, and almost
insignificant, to life-threatening. Whatever the level of the risk, it must still be minimised in order
to ensure the safety of the participants and the leader within the activity, before it and when
leaving it.

Part A:
In the following sections of this assignment you will be required to plan and lead a sporting activity.
However, before you do this, you must carryout a risk assessment for two different sporting
activities.

                                                                                       Unit 2: P3,M2

                               To gain a higher grade you must
                                   o Review the risk assessment controls and evaluate their
                                       effectiveness                                 Unit 2: D1




Part B:
Further to your risk assessments, you should produce a report describing three procedures used to
promote and maintain a healthy and safe sporting environment. These procedures should cover the
areas of:
                            Operating procedures and good practice
                            Safety procedures and protocols
                                                                                       Unit 2: P4
                To gain a higher grade you must:
                       o Explain three procedures used to promote and maintain
                           a healthy and safe sporting environment                    Unit 2: M3
                       o Analyse the procedures you have mentioned                    Unit 2: D2



Learning Outcomes: Unit 2: 2, 3
                        TASK 5: ‘Planning An Activity’
      Method of Assessment: Lesson Plan

As part of your role as a coaching officer you are going to demonstrate how to plan, lead and
evaluate a coaching session in a sport/skill of your choice. (You must have produced a risk
assessment for it in Task 4!).

For the session you need to:
           o Produce a plan, on a blank outline given to you by your tutor, or one designed by you.
           o Ensure the session lasts approximately 20 minutes.
           o Ensure you highlight health and safety aspects

                                                                      Part Evidence for Unit 2: P5
                                                                                        Unit 4: P4

                              To gain a higher grade you must
                                  o Explain the health and safety aspects you plan for
                                                                   Part evidence for Unit 2: M4



Learning Outcomes: Unit 2: 4; Unit 4: 3




                        TASK 6: ‘Leading An Activity’
      Method of Assessment: Witness Statement completed by your tutor

Now you must show your abilities to use the qualities, characteristics and roles that you have
explained in the delivery of your planned activity. In order to Pass this activity, you must deliver
your session, demonstrating a satisfactory level of motivation, timing, preparation and
confidence.
                                                                           (With Support) Unit 4: P5

Learning Outcomes: Unit 4: 4
                      TASK 7: ‘Reviewing Your Coaching’
      Method of Assessment: Written Report

Any good coach will be able to look back over their session, and suggest ways to improve their
performance next time- nobody is perfect! To finalise your assignment you should REVIEW your
plan and session, and suggest areas for improvement.

Your review should be in 2 parts:

PART A: The Plan
                      A review of how well you planned the session, including
                                  o Risk management
                                  o Suitability of activities
                                  o Suitability of equipment
                                                                                        Unit 2: P5
                                                                                  Unit 4: P6 (part)

                              To gain a higher grade you must:
                                  o Explain your plan in relation to the safe delivery of activity
                                                                                        Unit 2: M4
                                  o Identify strengths and areas for improvement in the plan,
                                      and suggest how improvements could be reached – you MUST
                                      JUSTIFY why you have made these suggestions to gain a
                                      Distinction.
                                                                                         Unit 2: D3
                                                                                 Unit 4: M5 (part)
                                                                                  Unit 4: D3 (part)

Part B: The Delivery

Finally you should review your own performance as a Coach delivering the session. To do this you
must produce an action plan for your coaching skills. This action plan must include:

                              Identified areas of strength and areas for development
                                                                           Completion of Unit 4: P6
                              Suggestions relating to HOW the improvements could be reached.
                               This should include possible courses that you could attend.
                                                                          Completion of Unit 4: M5
                              A JUSTIFICATION of the suggestions you make in relation to
                               development of the areas for improvement, including how the
                               courses you have mentioned will benefit you.
                                                                          Completion of Unit 4: D3
