Elevating Coach Performance:

There is no doubt we are in extraordinary times. The pressure and demands in sport are immense and expanding. Coaches are being asked to do more than ever before, expected to know it all, handle it all… and often, they are outside their comfort zone.

As conversations around mental health and wellbeing in sport become more prevalent, it’s important to expand the discussion to focus not just on athletes but coaches too. An athlete-centred system is nothing without a coach-centred system. So, how can coaches achieve personal optimal performance and show up for their athletes and colleagues in a powerful and resourceful way if their own wellbeing is compromised?

Join us as we navigate and discuss these concerns and the importance of coach wellbeing with Cody Royle, who mentors 15 head coaches from seven different team sports, in five different countries. Following Cody, we’ll hear from Lauren Brett, Integral Coach with Sport Law. Lauren will walk us through the tools and strategies available to support coaches in their endeavor to Elevate People and Performances.

We will:

  • Explore the impact of coach wellbeing on self, athletes and colleagues and the links to optimal personal and sport performance
  • Examine your needs and the barriers (internal and systemic beliefs) to your wellbeing
  • Learn practical tools to create the ecosystem that will allow you to perform at your best and optimize your role as a coach
