At Cannon Hill Stars Junior netball club, we love Melissa O’Brien. Her coaching clinics have injected a real positive energy into our club. In the past we have always struggled to find and retain coaches. The majority of our coaches are time poor and struggle to find the time to develop their coaching skills. During the club’s pre-season training, Melissa O’Brien ran four coaching sessions at our club.
The coaching sessions were a huge success and a great investment for the club. All coaches, from the novice to the experienced, learnt valuable skills and strategies. The sessions are practical and through Melissa’s guidance, you develop confidence in your ability. After each session, the coaches were always eager to implement their new skills with their teams. The added bonus of Melissa’s clinics are her humour – we all have a good laugh and they are fun. We have already noticed a dramatic increase in club spirit and networking between the coaches. We definitely plan to run the Coach Ed program again next year.
