Busy youth sport administrators will appreciate this all-in-one resource for training coaches, parents and officials. "The ASEP Youth Sport Training Kit" brings together six of the American Sport Education Program's most successful training videos into one comprehensive 101-minute DVD.Being a C.O.A.C.H. - this provides an introduction to volunteer coaching and working with players aged 8 to 14. The responsibilities of coaching, coaching philosophy, coaching for character and communicating with athletes and parents are all covered.Coaching Safety - deals with issues for ensuring safe play, such as establishing safety plans and examining equipment, fields and courts. Topics addressed include creating a safe environment, treating injuries, understanding liabilities surrounding the treatment of injuries and stretching to help prevent injuries.Preparing for Game Day - explains how to plan teams, conduct practices and schedules for games and sporting events. Covers the games approach to coaching, teaching sport skills, preparing practice plans and evaluating player performance.Winning Respect - Inter-school and club sport coaches face challenges in helping their athletes develop not only skills and strategies but also character, respect and responsibility.
Winning Respect helps coaches address those issues. As athletes watch, they'll see kids just like themselves talking about their feelings relating to respect for opponents, for team-mates and teams, for officials, for the game and between athletes and the coach.Officiating Youth Sport - highlights the keys to successful youth sport officiating, including what officials' duties and responsibilities are, how tightly to call games, how to be fair and impartial, how to communicate with coaches and players, how to handle conflict and how to keep the sport safe and fun for kids.SportParent - shows real kids giving their views of parents' involvement in their sports. The children tell how their parents' cheers boost their spirits and how torturous it can be when their parents yell at them or complain to the coach or referee. These childrens' words serve as a wake-up call for any parent and say more about sport parent behaviour than any adult ever could.With "The ASEP Youth Sport Training Kit", even novice sport administrators can conduct training sessions with confidence.
Featuring an easy-to-navigate menu, the DVD works in tandem with ASEP's coaching, officiating and SportParent instructor guides (available as free downloads from the ASEP Website) to make the task of leading clinics simple. The kit is a valuable resource for conducting clinics that have a positive impact on everyone involved in sport programmes.
