2017 NNZ Coach Development opportunities within Central Zone

NZ Coach Development Framework

Within Netball in New Zealand, there is a strong sense of national identity which binds us and creates unity.  We are the most popular women’s sport in New Zealand. We are small, culturally diverse and resilient.

The NNZ Coach Development Framework has been designed for developing coaches at all levels of the game and celebrates our uniqueness. It provides a vision and structure for improving the knowledge and delivery of Netball coaching with the overall goal of developing more quality and confident coaches. 
The approach is based on the following key principles:

• Designed specifically for Netball in New Zealand – reflective of New Zealand’s unique cultural and sporting environment
• Aligned - with Sport New Zealand coaching communities in conjunction with the New Zealand Coaching Strategy
• Player centred – based on the needs of the players, aligned to their stage of development and to the NNZ Player Development Guidelines
• Applicable and practical – encourages ‘on the job’ learning experiences
• Flexible – provides coaches with more choices and a higher degree of ownership in selecting and following their own development pathways
• Lifelong learning – promotes continued personal development and self-responsibility for learning

The NNZ Coach Development Framework encompasses four coaching communities:
* Foundation Coach
* Community Coach (CCA I and II)
* Performance Coach (PCQ)
* High Performance Coach

Within each community there is a wide range of coach development opportunities allowing for a coaches development to be a combination of formal, informal and ‘on the job’ learning. The workshops and modules cater for a wide range of learning styles and are reflective of the stages of player development.

The following is a breakdown of the CCA modules...
