Coach Mentoring Program
SFLCA Mentor program
The purpose of the mentor program is to help develop SFLCA Members across all divisions by pairing with coaches of significant experience.
The aim is to provide an independent set of ears to listen and guide.
What does a Mentor coach do?
A mentor can provide a variety of roles. Some of these include:
· Developing a coaches knowledge and skills
· Being a role model
· Building the confidence of the coach with whom they are working
· Being a resource: each sharing their own knowledge or directing coaches to other sources of information
· Challenging and Questioning the coaches current practice
· Providing introductions to other people who can help
Experienced coaches nominate themselves to be available to Mentor. These names will be posted on the SFLCA website.
Coaches looking for a Mentor should approach the SFLCA (via firstname.lastname@example.org). The SFLCA will organise the pairings. The idea being that there be divisional cross over, so it lessens the fear of intellectual property leakage and makes for a more open exchange.
The SFLCA hopes this program will be valuable to Senior Coaches, Under 19s Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Reserves coaches and Thirds.
