COACH CERTIFICATION CLINICS
DNA Sports’ Coaching Certification Clinics provide coaches of all sports with the education and tools needed to promote mutual respect, cooperation, teamwork, and sportsmanship. We also focus on building self-esteem and discipline in all student athletes.
We believe winning takes secondary importance to the social, emotional and physical development of every student-athlete involved. This approach is based on the belief that potential for athletic excellence and success cannot always be identified at an early age. Young athletes will frequently blossom and attain success in later years given the right opportunity to compete and develop their skills.
Naturally, a student athlete’s success depends greatly on the commitment, dedication and coaching education of all adult coaches involved in the growth of the student athlete.
- Help athletes master new skills, enjoy competition with others, and help young athletes feel good about themselves;
- Are well versed in the techniques and skills of their sport;
- Understand how to effectively teach those skills through age-appropriate exercises and drills;
- Teach and model skills needed for successful daily living outside of sports.
The DNA Sports Coaching Certification Program is a two-part seminar covering critical topics such as:
- Injury: prevention, care, and management
- Social, emotional, and athletic growth
- Training, conditioning, and nutrition
- Social and psychological aspects of coaching
- Motivation for young athletes
