Ghana National Coaches Clinic
Coaching can be defined as the art of facilitating the performance, learning and development of an individual. Coaches are the essential ingredient to what enables the transfer of knowledge, resources and practice sustainable. Sustainability exponentially magnifies the impact one has on a community. This is the reason why on January 4th, 2011, as part of Project Ghana, iStandAbove, with the assistance from Give Running and WitnessHOPE, orchestrated the first of many Ghana National Coaches Clinic. A total of 22 of Ghana’s best coaching staff of a variety of sports were in attendance on this day to gain more knowledge to better their craft of coaching.
The aim of this event is to create a cycle of tutoring and mentorship between current and up and coming coaches in Ghanaian Sports. Athletes in Ghana deserve the best coaching but the continued mentorship and guidance of coaches, young or old, provides an everlasting effect on the performance and development of our athletes in Ghana. The event focused on a number of presentations including health and nutrition, strength and conditioning, leadership in a team environment, SMART methodology, sports psychology, dynamic stretching, drills and plyometrics.
We were also blessed to welcome honorable guests Jordan Anagblah, Vice President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Nana Obiri Yeboah, Dean of School of Business, Accra Polytechnic and Wolanyo Agra, Director General of the National Sports Authority.
