Sunday Coaching School

Sunday Coaching School

The Little Athletics NSW Sunday Coaching School supports ongoing coach learning and development. The bi-weekly sessions, held live on Zoom, feature leading coaches as guests.

The guests provide an insight into their coaching background, philosophies and practices, and answer questions submitted in advance from the attendees.

Bonus: Live attendees get access to an “Inside Scoop” Q&A session with the guest that does not feature in the session recording.

The sessions are aimed coaches, parents, and anyone who wants to learn more about coaching and developing young athletes.

It is FREE to register to attend a session live. A Zoom link will be sent to you on booking.

PLEASE NOTE: Sunday Coaching School sessions are recorded.  The audio and video recording is made publicly available via YouTube and the Sunday Coaching School podcast. Attendees are asked to mute their microphones during the recorded parts of the session so that they do not feature in the recording.

Using Zoom

What is Zoom?

Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing service you can use to virtually meet with others – either by video or audio-only or both, all while conducting live chats.

You can attend a Zoom meeting with your video and/or audio on or off. You can actively participate or simply sit back, watch and listen. During a Zoom session, you can chat or ask questions by written text using the chat function or you can speak using your microphone. The meeting “host” will usually instruct all attendees on protocols for the meeting.

Testing Out Zoom

If you haven’t used Zoom before, you can try it out by joining a “test” meeting. Check out the Zoom test link and instructions HERE.
