Coach Across America
  Up2Us

We are excited to announce the paid coaching positions in Atlanta has now been filled.  The appointment of Stacy Ross will see the development of Netball through our youth programs and Opal Hill is appointed as the local Site Supervisor.  So congratulations to them both as this will be over 900 hours of coaching work to be given to the community over the next 12 months.

 

As a result of this appointment they both received a 3 day trip to Boston with all expenses covered to attend the national Coach Across America training.  Some of the topics covered were: how to work and deal with children of all social levels and backgrounds; team building aspects; identifying triggers that can set problem children off;  creating more informal time for the youth in  programs - this allows you to get to know each child and discover hidden talents; to not be too quick to give up on those that present challenges.     
 

Stacy and Opal wanted to provide the following key tip to coaches - You need to coach for the following outcomes:  Self Awareness, Positive Identity, Situation Awareness, Social Confidence, Future Focus, Pro-social Connections, Plan B Thinking and Discipline.  

 

Read below as to how the ladies have already got this program kick started.

Netball America coaches and volunteers enjoyed a day of beautiful sunshine in the Bronx on August 10th.  Part of our culture is to help the community and in working with the 44th Precinct we were able to get the community as well as the NYPD playing some Netball.
