Are you ready to connect, inspire, empower, and create positive sporting experiences? Coach Emerge can help you learn about the coaching process with techniques that will provide you with the foundation to run your own coaching sessions. Ask questions, make contacts, listen, learn and share your own thoughts as you begin your journey as a coach.


Coach Emerge is a values-based coach development programme for active foundation coaches working in clubs, schools. and the community.  The aim is to give coaches with less than three years of experience, the confidence, knowledge, and skills to be able to provide quality experiences for their participants. 


Join the West Auckland Coaching Network on Facebook. Keep up to date with personal development opportunities from Sport Waitākere, connect with other coaches, and share your coaching stories and insights.​​​​​​​


The Coach Emerge programme consists of two workshops that are underpinned by Good Sports, Balance is Better and athlete-centered philosophies. Coaches will take part in a mixture of presentations, discussions, practical sessions, and contribute individual and group feedback. Opportunities for self-reflection will also be provided to allow coaches to put existing and new coaching skills into practice.

Sport Waitākere uses a co-design process with clubs, schools, and community groups to ensure the programme is tailored to meet your needs.​​​​​​​ For more information please contact Mick Coultard.
