Ontario Coaches Conference
The 5th annual Ontario Coaches Conference will be held from February 25th to -27th, 2011 in London.This year's conference will incorporate the theme "one to one". The relationship between a coach and their athlete is a key factor in the development of skills and a positive attitude. A great coach inspires, challenges, and motivates their athlete to reach their full potential. It’s the fostering of such relationship that builds better athletes and better coaches. The 2011 Ontario Coaches Conference aims to explore that one to one bond.
This event will bring together over 350 of Ontario's finest coaches for a weekend of learning, networking and celebration. In partnership with Tourism London, the conference will take place at the London Convention Centre, located in the heart of the city. Coaches can enhance their expertise through a combination of National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) training and hot coaching topics like debriefing performance, coaching female athletes and legal considerations of social media.
Costs and registration
Presenters for the conference include: Dr. Peter Jensen, Dr. Vicki Harber, Dr. Natascha Wesch, Kevin Lawrie, Caron Shepley, Ian Kennedy, Ed McNeel and Bruce Craven.
