Welcome to the second edition of Coaching News. We hope you found the first newsletter useful and informative. Well its been a very busy 3 months! We have now completed all coach verification evenings in round one for RightCoach. Just over 100 coaches have now been fully verified against the minimum standards for deployment and I am very pleased to see that many coaches are at this standard already. So well done to you.

Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year

Myself and 3 colleagues have recently undertaken our certificate in tutoring sport qualification which now means we are able to offer further topics within our coach education programme, thus increasing your development opportunities. Wiltshire & Swindon held their 6th CSSN meeting towards the end of November. This involved considerable discussion around the main priorities to drive forward over the coming months. The group have decided to concentrate on 4 areas including to develop a mentoring scheme for coaches, to provide coach manager training to ensure there is a standard approach when employing and deploying coaches across the county, to work with NGB's in identifying their coaching needs and continual education of the Minimum Standards for Deployment and RightCoach to all schools and coaches. Remember this is your newsletter so if you do have any feedback, comments or any topics you would like to see covered please do let me know.

Are you a Level 2 Coach?

The Spending to Why not add an Comprehensive Alternative Sports Qualification Review and Sport in Wiltshire and your CV and gain further opportunities.

Please see below for a range of alternative sports Swindon courses coming soon: The full impact of the CSR on Sport in Wiltshire is still emerging, however there are two significant areas worth highlighting.

County Sports Partnership Funding confirmed until 2014/15 Whilst Sport England has to make 33% savings, they have been able to confirm long term funding for county sports partnerships including WASP. This funding is to enable us to support national governing bodies of sport deliver their participation programmes locally. “Sport England’s funding for county sports partnerships has helped them create a national network of consistent, reliable and focused organisations delivering real benefits for sport on the ground,” said Mike Diaper, Sport England’s Executive Director for Youth and Communities. “What’s important now is that the high-performance continues so that governing bodies get even better support in delivering their participation programmes.”

Funding for PE and School Sport ending 2011 As part of the CSR it was announced that the £160m funding for PE and School Sport is to finish potentially as soon as April 2011. However this week it has been announced that this is being reviewed. This money has funded the work of around 450 school sport partnerships across England, five of which are in Wiltshire and Swindon. The work of the school sport partnerships in the county have been significant with large increases in the number of young people in school who are involved in PE, school sport, competition, volunteering and leadership and community sport programmes. Coaches have played a key role in ensuring high quality delivery of the programmes. WASP is involved in local discussions with partners about the impact and how the work may continue in the future.

Player Pathways Sporting pathways are about providing opportunities for people to participate in sport at any level and at any stage in life. Long - Term Player Development (LTPD) considers the entire sporting pathway, enabling a sport to build a framework for the development of athletes and players from introductory to high performance level. And it’s not just about getting every athlete on to a performance pathway; LTPD also helps sports to encourage life-long activity through sport. The basic stages of LTPD are: Learning to play Playing to learn Playing for life Training to train Training to compete Training to win The frameworks act as a technical document that sports can refer to when making informed / strategic decisions about how they should develop their sporting pathways, programmes, competitions, coaching etc. This approach ensures that those involved in the sporting pathway get an experience relevant to their stage of development. To highlight the importance in having a pathway in place Rachel Turner, Great Britain Volleyball player and local coach explains the processes, pathways and support she received through her journey from playing volleyball at school to a GB squad player. See the following page for a case study on Rachel Turner’s progress.

I started playing volleyball in Year 7 in an after school club. Through recommendation by the coach I then joined my local Volleyball Club in Melksham and started training/ playing volleyball up to 3 times a week. My club coach recognised potential in me and I was put forward to attend trials for the South West U15 squad where I competed at this level for 2 years aged 12 and 13 years winning the inter-regional championships both years. Achieving early success like this was a real surprise to me and I felt very proud. Aged 13 years I was then lucky enough to be selected to represent England cadets at several international tournaments and also attended trials for the England Junior U19s Squad. Up until then all my training and support had been funded by my parents, but now as an England player I am eligible to apply for Sport England funding every year helping to fund my training, competition, travelling and accommodation costs. I have also been fortunate enough in receiving a couple of local grants from the Rotary Club and through the Sporting Success People of Wiltshire Award. From the age of 16 years I was playing volleyball most days, including training with the performance squad at the University of Bath 3 days a week, my local club in Melksham once a week, in Coventry once a week to train with my National League Team and spent most weekends competing all over the country. I was doing all of this whilst doing my A Levels! Being able to train with all these different teams and having lots of support really allowed me to progress to the level I am today. From the age of 18 years I was part of the England Junior Squad and was invited to train with the England Senior Team in order to progress my volleyball skills and to provide me with the experience I needed at that higher level. At the European Championships I unfortunately picked up a serious injury which meant I could not play for one year. This left me feeling down and very frustrated. Throughout my injury I was very lucky in receiving lots of support through Team Bath & TASS (Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme) such as mentoring, nutrition, physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, specific strength and conditioning and a full rehabilitation programme including x-rays and MRI scans. After I was fully recovered from my injury I was invited to join the Foundation Degree in Sports Performance alongside the Volleyball full time training programme at the University of Bath. Here I receive TASS funding as well as a full Teambath Scholarship. Having this funding allows me to receive all my coaching, physiotherapy treatment, nutrition advice, psychology training, strength and conditioning training and free use of all facilities. Currently I have predominantly being playing beach volleyball, but still travel to London several times a week to train and play indoors. Over the past couple of years I have travelled to countries such as New Zealand, India, Egypt, Turkey & Russia to compete for Great Britain in beach volleyball. I am currently ranked number 1 in Great Britain and 13 in Europe for my age group. Through my player pathway it has been so important to me to have the support and direction from those around me, without them I would not be where I am today and I am very grateful of that. Not only have I been training and competing over the last few years but I have also completed my Level 1 and 2 coaching qualifications, and I am a qualified beach referee. I thoroughly enjoy coaching volleyball and love that I can give something back to the sport in which has helped me get to where I am today.
