‘Leadership in Adventure Sports – unpicking our behaviours and actions that make a difference’
“Who we are, What we do and How we do it – A sharing of ideas and theories”
Adventure sports coaches (paddling, mountaineering, climbing, snowsports, mountain biking etc) have the common theme of developing learner’s personal performance in a dynamic and high-risk environment.
To do this successfully many would say a ‘unique’ set of coaching skills is required; one of these coaching skills is the art of leadership. With so much adventure sports coaching taking place in remote and hostile environments, where journeying is often playing a major part, the way in which the coach has the ability to lead those who join them is critical.
Within adventure sports there are also many who choose to focus less on the coaching and more on the leading, thus providing unique experiences and facilitating the natural environment to perhaps do the teaching. How these leaders lead is again critical to success along with the associated decision-making and interpersonal environment created.
Our team of leadership and coaching experts aim to bring cutting edge theories into the adventure sports domain to explore ways to develop our practice. The day will be facilitated in an interactive, supportive and informative way by a delivery team who hold some of the highest level of both academic and adventure sport qualifications.
The day is recognized as CPD points/Coach Update by the majority of adventure sports NGB’s.
