Martin Chester Speaks Out.
28 Nov 2011
Plas y Brenin's Director of Training, Level Five Coach Martin Chester is key note speaker this weekend at Canoe England's Coaching Conference.
Here's the framework for Martin's speech:
Whether you choose a high pace sprint to elite performance; or a steady meander through a life-time of recreational paddling; there is no single pathway through our sport(s). From laying down the first exciting foundations, through to helping people fulfil their dreams and potential(whatever they may be) it is essential to remember that we are coaching real people - with real lives, real issues, real constraints and a real mix of objectives. Starting with our own diverse experiences; throughout the session we will draw on inspiration from other disciplines, and other sports, to look at how we adapt our theoretical coaching and developmental models to support a lifetime of paddling.
Delivered by Martin Chester, Director of Training at Plas y Brenin, National Mountain Centre. Martin has over twenty years experience in the industry, having worked across the full spectrum skills and coaching courses from beginners to experienced performers, from the first rung on the ladder to the highest qualifications in paddling, climbing, ski touring, and walking. Martin will be able to bring this massive range of experience, share with us his views, and challenge our own!
