COACHING PHILOSOPHY

The philosophy that underpins the coach development programme has been chosen due to its strong athlete centred focus. This chosen philosophy is known as ‘The New Zealand CoachApproach’. It is the goal of the PGA and New Zealand Golf to increase the understanding of the ‘athlete centred’ coaching style and to foster a culture amongst coaches in New Zealand that is true to this philosophy. Sport New Zealand has produced a series of video presentations to promote ‘The New Zealand Coach Approach’ and illustrate effective New Zealand coaches in action. These videos can be viewed in this section.
