COACHING EDUCATION REPORT
Ralph Perrotto reported. There are 20 Samba Sunday sign-ups so far. Ralph requested board members to talk it up as he would like to increase the rosters, especially the GU10 group. The session will begin January 15th and run for 8 weeks thru -March 18th 2012. (2 Sundays off for Feb vacation).
There are 140 registered coaches thus the question was presented about the possibility of sponsoring G and F courses to educate the coaches. There was much discussion around past non-compliance and likeliness of future participation. It was decided that the link to take the G course on-line would be distributed to current coaches with coordinators’ encouragement to have their coaches take the time to earn this designation. Player development and additional coach training and guidance to coaches at each level was also discussed at length. It was decided that this program needs some fine-tuning.
