British Showjumping Excel Coaching Programme 2016
Monday 11 January 2016
With support from Sport England and as part of the Excel Talent Programme for riders, British Showjumping has developed a programme to support coaches working within talent development pathways. The programme is aimed at those coaches working within talent pathways whilst wanting to develop knowledge, skills and experience in this specialised area.
The programme offers coaches a mix of the following:
- Workshops and personal action planning geared at supporting work within the talent environment
- Sharing best practice with coaches from other sports on talent development
- Opportunities to be involved with and learn through existing talent programmes (AASE, Excel Talent and World Class training camps)
- Experience of international environments, in order to experience the pressure environments and gain familiarity with the preparation and protocol of international competitions
British Showjumping aspires to have well prepared coaches whom have a great understanding of the talent development environment and are able to ensure consistent approaches to developing young showjumpers for a successful career in the sport. The training and opportunities will be provided free of charge to all coaches successfully selected onto the programme. Please note that all travel costs will need to be self-funded.
