New interactive E-Learning course guides coaches toward a True Sport approach

Values-Based Coaching: A True Sport Approach

Ottawa – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) is excited to introduce Values-Based Coaching: A True Sport Approach – an interactive, self-reflective e-learning course for coaches at all levels of sport. Interactions between coach and participant are important determinants of an individual’s sport experience: the values and practices modelled by coaches can be powerful and enabling for all, or they can drive participants out of sport for a lifetime.

Values-Based Coaching: A True Sport Approach gathers a coach’s previous experience, knowledge, and sport-specific needs, then demonstrates how they can use the True Sport Principles to nurture positive and enriching sport experiences for every participant. The course walks coaches through personal reflections about their values, coaching philosophy, and motivation, then gives them practical tools and resources to implement a values-based approach to their work. This innovative course also extends coaches’ understanding of long-term development and explains the connections between Safe Sport and True Sport.
