  • Coaching the whole person; coaching beyond the physical to include the mental (intellectual and emotional), spiritual and cultural;

  • Establishing a code of behaviour for your team that respects differences and addresses racism;
  • Helping those you coach make healthy lifestyle choices.
Coach Mental Health Workshop
January 29 in Saskatoon and January 31 in Regina - 11:30 am to 1:30 pm 
Mental health is an important issue, and is especially relevant in today's sport world. Stress, pressure, and performance standards affect not only athletes but coaches as well, and can put strain on one's mental health and wellness levels. Taking time to prioritize the self and one's energy levels can have a significant impact on being able to ensure that mental well-being is properly addressed. This session will examine issues that coaches experience that create stress and disruptions to mental wellness, will explore the different ways that mental wellness can be disrupted, and will identify tools and strategies that coaches can use to prioritize their mental health.
