2 Why Coach?The first Questions I asked after the Workshop was why I coach and how did I start?Love of my SportsInterested and supportive school Coaching staffClub Youth Coaching programmeRegional and National Coaching StaffProfessional role at SchoolsIn essence I coach because I love the game and have a passion to develop young players to share in that love. Even to this day I have a desire to improve as a coach and deliver the best I can to players I come into contact with, whether school students or HP AthletesPaul Smith (NHHA HP Coach/Director of Avondale College Sports Academy

5 The Vision “Leadership is a privilege and a Service to others” This initiative led by Sport New Zealand, facilitated by ourselves and supported by Sport Waitakere will encourage student empowerment and leadership through SportMany of our Year 9 Sports Academy students have already demonstrated and been given the opportunity to lead within their Primary and Intermediate Schools. It is vital that we nurture these abilities from the onset and develop these young people into the Leaders of the Sports Academy and Sport at Avondale College.We already do this through the programme but both the Growing Leaders and Growing Coaches Programmes give a contextual plan of implementation and delivery with resource support.All the Coaching Staff in the Sports Academy have similar philosophies on developing the individual and Life skills, the vehicle being their Sport. As such it is the ideal model to deliver the programme through.There is no doubt that the advantages are that Avondale College will benefit from the programme by enhancing the students Leadership potential, creating a greater pool of talented leaders to promote and help deliver Sport at the College. The possibilities are endless from organising Sporting events within the school, Lunchtime activities, Workshops at our Feeder Primary and Intermediate Schools as well as coaching our Junior Sports programme.The Aim of the Growing Leaders programme in Year 9 Sports Academy is to grow their leadership potential, exploring, discovering and navigating Leadership by experiential opportunities. They will explore themselves, building a foundation to lead others through Sport.In Year 10 we will facilitate the Growing Coaches programme where the Coaching experiences enhance the Leadership development. They will understand that Coaching includes Learning, programme and session planning and progression as well as constant evaluation. They will realise that these Leadership qualities and coaching skills are transferable into Life Skills.
6 The Philosophy and Objectives of Growing Coaches at Avondale College Essentially the purpose of the programme is to promote young peoples’ LIFE SKILLS through Sport and Coachingto prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences to manage effectively their REAL LIFE ISSUES.The programme creates an environment to enable individuals to improve their personal and social skills, build self-esteem and confidence, inspiring them to set measurable, achievable, realistic goalsGrowing Coaches provides a platform for the development of young coaches at Avondale College
