Confidence and motivation.
Confidence and motivation are vital to becoming skilful and enjoying long term participation. Although elements of this are integral parts of the other two courses (Becoming Skilful and Effective Coaching), this webinar course will focus more closely on all things psychological.
Both adventure sports and equestrian sports have an inherent level of risk as well as the need to participate and perform without direct coaching supervision. This course will help you as a coach or performer to create and sustain optimal learning environments for yourself and/or those you coach.
This course will support you to gain a good understanding of how motivation and confidence influence participation and skill acquisition. It is also a perfect complement to your National Governing Body coaching qualifications and should be accepted as coaching CPD.

‘What is going on when performers develop their skills through play and exploration? When what they have done in the past starts to break down and they find new solutions beginning to emerge? It looks ugly – but this is where learning happens. Playing and exploring with focus, effort and passion in the Ugly Zone!’ Marianne Davies
