The first Mentor Training Course being conducted by the Office of Sport in 2019, will be held on Sunday, March 31.
Mentoring programs are valuable tools for developing coaches and officials and many sports have successfully implemented mentoring programs for this purpose. But commonly there has been little formal direction or training for mentors to assist them in this role. As a consequence Sport Australia has designed a course to specifically assist somebody taking on a mentoring role in Coaching or Officiating.
The Mentor Training Course contains units on the following topics
How Does Mentoring Work In Sport
Know Your Mentee
Setting Up Mentoring Relationships
Mentoring in Action
Communication Skills For Mentors
Managing and Resolving Conflict
Full venue and date details are:
Date: Sunday, March 31
Times: 9.30am til 3.30pm
Venue: Fraser Meeting Room, Level 2 NSWIS Building, 6 Figtree Dve, Sydney Olympic Park

ADDITIONAL TEST DATE – 4TH FEBRUARY AT CANTERBURY OLYMPIC ICE RINK
Attention – Coaches who have skaters wishing to complete testing for Technical and/or Artistic Competition.
THE GOOD NEWS: Due to unprecedented numbers registering for testing IN 2018 and the release of closing dates for competition, an additional test date has been added to the calendar, so as not to disadvantage those needing to qualify or just haven’t been able to secure a test date.
THE NOT SUCH GOOD NEWS (for some): You will need to be ready to undertake the test on Sunday 4th February between 8.45 and 11 am at Canterbury Rink.
If you have skaters that are interested, please make application via the NSWISA website which is now open for registrations. This date will close as soon as it is deemed full, so please don’t delay.
