Connecting Coaches

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on youth sport in New Zealand, and the ability to coach and remain connected to athletes has been a new challenge for most. Through connection, collaboration and innovative ideas we can embrace the challenging times ahead and find opportunities to grow ourselves as coaches.

This is why Sport NZ has teamed up with some of the top coaches and leaders in coach development from around New Zealand and the world to bring you a webinar series called ‘Connecting Coaches’. Find out more and register.
