Wednesday 20 September

Barfoot & Thompson have thrown their support behind Netball coaches in New Zealand, extending their partnership with the National Coach Development Programme.

The National Coach Development Programme, presented by Barfoot & Thompson is a programme that offers a pathway from Foundation right through to High Performance coach accreditation.

In addition to the formal accreditation offered to Netball coaches, additional workshops are offered to support a self-directed learning approach, which aligns to current, world best practice coaching pedagogy.

NNZ National Manager Coach Development, Kirsten Hellier says she is excited Barfoot & Thompson is extending their association with the programme.

“Coaches play an integral role in fostering the next generation and current crop of talent. I’m excited that Barfoot & Thompson shares our values for quality coaching at all levels,” Hellier said.

Family-owned and run, Barfoot & Thompson is New Zealand’s largest privately owned real estate company, with over 90 years’ experience in the industry.

Managing Director Peter Thompson says they’re proud to continue their support of Netball in New Zealand via the National Coach Development Programme.

“Techniques and technology play a big part in sport today and the same applies with Barfoot & Thompson - to continue to be at the top of your game you have to keep developing winning methods,” Thompson said.
