DPP Coach Development

Sale Sharks Academy Coach Development Programme is designed to support coaches’ development who are part of the Sale Sharks Academy Pathway. Our aim is to provide excellent coaching, every time, for every player. The programme allows access to high – quality coach development sessions to support coaches and teachers continuing professional development (CPD). Observation sessions will provide pathway coaches with enhanced skills, new ideas and increased knowledge on how to develop our Sharks DNA to meet the needs of players at the appropriate stage in their development. Ultimately enhancing delivery throughout the DPP & SDG pathways, and to ensure the best possible talent development environments. Sessions are designed and delivered by Academy coaches and staff. Our programme is  linked with England Rugby and all evenings are held at Sale Sharks High Performance Training Centre Carrington.

COACH MENTORING PROGRAMME

The Sale Sharks Academy Coach Mentor Programme purpose is to help our academy pathway coaches raise their effectiveness. Our mentoring process is about facilitating, modifying and improving current skills and competencies, increasing knowledge on how to develop our Sharks DNA, learning new skills and strategies, and overcoming personal and situational challenges and barriers.

Our Coach Mentoring Programme will require the coach and mentor to have agreed to develop a plan to work on selected skills and strategies in the coach’s repertoire. An Academy mentor will also have knowledge and skills which will be of assistance to the coach both in improving their coaching skills and personal capabilities. Our mentors will also have rugby development related knowledge and may have coached. This means our mentors will have experience and a sound understanding of the pressures and frustrations, as well as the excitement and successes, which accompany a coach on their journey within the Sale Sharks Academy.

Our coach mentoring process is designed with the intention of helping our pathway coaches to improve their level of performance and understanding of the coaching process through guidance, encouragement, data and feedback.
