The Illawarra Coaching Network provides representatives from all levels of sport in the region with the opportunity to jointly identify, prioritise and work on the key components of coach development. The Network offers a range of workshops, presentations and a social media platform.
The Network held its latest event on 21 March at the University of Wollongong. The event focused on skill acquisition and featured guest speaker Derek Panchuck who has over 15 years’ experience in the academic and elite sports sectors, including recently being the National Lead in Skill Acquisition at the Australian Institute of Sport.
Dereck discussed athlete self-regulation, performance vs learning and constraints-lead approaches to coaching.
