Game for Life Workshop for Coaches

Singapore , 16 Sep 2016

On the 5th of September, the Leadership Development department organised a half-day Game-for-Life (GFL) workshop for Coaches. The workshop is the second run of a GFL workshop that is being offered as part of the Continuing Coach Education (CCE) and was attended by 20 coaches.

The experiential workshop took the coaches through a series of practical activities that allowed coaches to experience a values-based basketball session conducted by Junior NBA Coach Tom Kelsey who is here in Singapore to conduct the Jr. NBA Regional Training Programme presented by ActiveSG.

This was followed by Mr. Gobinathan Nair presenting about positive and negative behaviours in sport, challenges on teaching values and the GFL framework as a structured approach to infuse values within coaching sessions. The session ended with the coaches experiencing designing & delivering a sport activity infused with values using the GFL framework.

"Character is not automatically built through sports, but only through the consistent and persistent efforts of parents, teachers, and coaches will sportsmanship and other positive values be learned and demonstrated.”
