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."

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar.

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
