2018 Positive Behaviour in Sport training

Scottish Fencing are running a Positive Behaviour Management in Sport workshop on the 18 September. This is an excellent workshop aimed at all volunteers working with children in clubs. This training will suit welfare officers, organisers of junior tournaments, junior team managers as well as coaching staff. And whilst aimed at those who work with children it will change the outlook and way volunteers communicate with people of all ages.

The training will look at the times when the behaviours of some young participants leave you feeling confused, frustrated and deskilled! By the end of this inspiring course it will help you work out why unwanted behaviours occur, how to respond to the challenges as they crop up and how to prevent these from happening again and again. Identifying what creates a positive coaching environment and taking actions that will encourage the types of behaviour you want is the key to successful behaviour management.

 The workshop will cover:

  • Setting the scene and getting the basics right
  • Possible reasons why unwanted behaviours occur
  • Positive behaviour management
  • Creating a culture of self-regulation
  • Techniques for responding to inappropriate behaviour
  • Scenarios

Scottish Fencing will open this course up to other sports so please book early as places are limited. the course runs from 6.30 - 9.30 at West Fife Fencing Club.
