* Sports Australia Mentor Training Course – 31/3/19

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

  1. How Does Mentoring Work In Sport 
  2. Know Your Mentee 
  3. Setting Up Mentoring Relationships
  4. Mentoring in Action
  5. Communication Skills For Mentors
  6. 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

Cost: $75.00

Registration for the Mentor Training Course is via the “Book Now” link on course description page on our website – NSW Sports & Recreation

Alternatively individuals who would like to attend can call NSW Sports & Recreation client services division on 131302 to book in over the phone.  When following this procedure have a credit card handy and quote Program Number 0085249 for Mentor Training

* In Memoriam – Lynette Anne Piskorz

A wonderful friend and colleague to our coaching and skating community has lost her fight against breast cancer this month.

Lyn Piskorz was a life member of NSWPSA, former Vice President, a long time coach at Prince Alfred and then Macquarie and was a skater in Victoria.

Sadly missed along life’s way,
quietly remembered every day…
No longer in our life to share,
but in our hearts, you’re always there.

Donate today to National Breast Cancer Foundation to help in the research to fight this disease.

Donate today to the McGrath Foundation – a breast cancer support & education charity. Providing money to supply Breast care nurses throughout Australia.
