Coach the Coaches

24 May 2024

An initiative to upskill our school team coaches

During the holidays, the PE Department hosted a new initiative, Coach the Coaches. The program provided our parent community and Kelly Sports staff with the opportunity to learn from Jack Rolfe, an established educator, business owner, and youth coaching guru. The ultimate aim of this session was to boost participation, enjoyment and skill development for all of our students at SPW in their sporting pursuits at school and beyond.

We were privileged to host Jack Rolfe, the Founder of The Coaching Lab, who spearheaded the informative and practical afternoon. With an impressive background in some of the world’s leading youth development environments, including Arsenal FC and West Ham FC, and valuable insights gained from Rugby Australia and Fremantle Dockers AFL, Jack brought a wealth of knowledge to the session. Jack not only introduced his innovative Coaching Lab Cards but also conducted practical, skill-based coaching sessions suitable for children aged 5 and above.

The session was informative and engaging, offering our coaches and parents invaluable tools and techniques to enhance their coaching abilities. We thank Jack for his expertise and all the parents and coaches who participated enthusiastically in making this event a resounding success.

Stay tuned for future opportunities to continue enriching our students’ sporting experience at SPW.
