Success in Fiji: Coaches Education

The Oceania Athletics Association Area Development Centre is excited to announce the completion of our first face-to-face Coaches Education and Certification System (CECS) LII Sprints/Hurdles/Jumps since the borders opened for the Pacific Region.

Thirteen (13) participants from eight (8) different Member Federations participated in the course held in Nadi, Fiji, at the beginning of November.

The Level II course is designed to be an introduction to performance coaching for coaches who have performed well at Level I and have gained a level of coaching specialisation in one of the following five event groups. This course was a hybrid course that specialised in Jumps and Sprints/Hurdles.

With this specialisation, they can meet their Member Federation’s need for high-level coaches. It is anticipated that most Level II participants will continue to Level III. In addition to elements specific to the events group, the Level II syllabus contains core elements common to all events. On completion of a Level II course, a coach will be expected to be able to identify and coach the basic competition model for each event within an event group. The coach will also be expected to be able to plan and implement a series of appropriate micro-cycles and their respective training sessions within the context of an annual training plan.

Lecturers Nik Hagicostas, Kylie Wheeler and Albert Miller shared their knowledge and expertise over the course week with the participants; we look forward to our participants implementing what they have learned in their respective countries.
