Auckland coaches selected for Coach Evolve 2018

Auckland coaches selected for Coach Evolve 2018

More than 60 Auckland coaches have been confirmed for the prestigious Coach Evolve programme in 2018.

Coach Evolve is an Auckland-wide, values-based coach development programme for active development coaches working in clubs, schools and the community from a range of sports. Running for a year, the programme is collaboratively designed and delivered between Aktive - Auckland Sport & Recreation and regional delivery partners - Harbour Sport, CLM Community Sport, Sport Waitakere and Sport Auckland. It aims to give coaches the latest knowledge, skills and confidence to be able to deliver life-changing experiences every time they coach.

Aktive Coaching and Talent Development Manager, Luke Morriss, says the development coaching community supports and influences thousands of people every week.

"Coaches provide more than just the technical and tactical sporting knowledge - they also shape values, beliefs and behaviours that are used in everyday life such as leadership, teamwork and commitment," says Morriss.

"We know that coaching an athlete changes a life, but coaching a coach changes a community. This is particularly important to how we are co-creating a world-class sport system in Auckland, community by community."
