Introduction

BTEC National Diploma Sport Sports Coaching A local collage has asked me to organise and lead a 20-minute coaching session to a group of first year national diploma sport students. Aims and objectives I will try to keep my aims and objectives simple so that I do not complicate my session anymore than necessary. I plan on making sure I use the whole time available to me, not finishing short, and filling it with as many activities as possible. I also aim on keeping my session rather simple seeing as it will be my first coaching session with these particular students, I will try to progress my session if I think the group shows an adequate ability to cope. I also think it is important to make sure I keep everyone taking part as often as possible as I may be working outside, in cold conditions, and students will want to stay active. I will have to make sure my session is properly planned out, including a warm up and a cool down as I don't want any injuries due to pulled muscles. ...read more.

I will make sure that I am aware of all emergency exits and fire assembly points in case of any emergency that may occur. I will make these points aware to all participants. It is also my responsibility to be aware of the nearest first aid box/kit in case me or any of my participants need medical attention. It is also the responsibility of the students to treat me and their piers with respect and not endanger anyone by acting foolish and misbehaving. I will make sure I am in possession of all the phone numbers I will need in an emergency, for example; college numbers, students parents numbers and the emergency services. Personal Review How did my lesson go? I believe my lesson went well in most ways. I received feedback from the teacher and I was told that I had organised and led my session well enough to pass my teaching course. I believe there were areas that I could improve and will look to do so the next time I led a similar lesson. I will also take into account areas of which I saw as my strong points as they will help me to build on a lesson next time using the same techniques. ...read more.

Conclusion

What areas could I improve? There were a few small areas that I thought I could improve, and the teacher reviewing my lesson pointed out a few things I could have used to improve it. For example when I was running one of my activities, I split the group up into two groups and made them pass a football between themselves. This could have been improved by splitting the groups even more into smaller amounts so that the people within each circle would get much more touches on the ball and would be involved more frequently. This is of priority as you don't want participants to get bored and uninterested in the activity. It was also made to my attention that I had not planned ahead enough to use a whistle, this can be easily overcome but having a whistle handy will help you get the attention of the group more clearly and quickly. I personally thought that my activities could have been improved with more progressions. I could have achieved this by adding different scenarios to challenge the participants. The priority of this is to help improve the participants techniques with various styles which suit different people. ?? ?? ?? ?? Steven Coddington 1. ...read more.
