Coaches praise for National Development Programme

British Eventing is pleased to confirm four BE Accredited Coaches, Fran Bird BHSI, Sam Champney-Warrener BHSI, Clare Chamberlayne BHSI and Tracy Garside BHSII have successfully completed the first two days of the National Development Programme for Coaching Excellence for the 2017/2018 programme.

The coaches were joined by Coach and Coaching Development Consultant Nicky Fuller, along with a range of interesting and thought-provoking guest speakers. Sam Champney-Warrener BHS Performance Coach (BHSI) described the two days as: "Empowering, Educational, and Fun!”

Continuing; “I am so grateful to have been selected by British Eventing to participate in the National Development Programme for Coaching Excellence. Working with talented coaches from British Showjumping, British Dressage and BE as well as excellent mentors is a great chance to improve and for-fill our potential, facilitating further learning of various coaching techniques, which we can then pass on to our clients."

After day two, Tracy Garside added; “Another fascinating day! We are definitely forming a strong unit which is remarkable in such a short time.”

An excited Fran Bird said; "Great couple of days! I think it's brilliant that the federations are putting so much emphasis on developing good coaches into coaches of excellence to help develop quality within our sports. Not only will we be able to use the skills to coach riders from grassroots to international and help produce skilful riders but also to disseminate what we've learnt to other coaches in future workshops.

"The sessions from actresses as well as elite equestrian coaches were inspirational and educational. The opportunity to meet other brilliant coaches itself provides a platform for sharing ideas and developing each other. With future sessions planned in sports psychology, youth development and with other elite equestrian coaches, it's an exciting and inspirational thing to be part of - looking forward to next sessions."

Guest speakers, Dinah Stabb, Fellow of the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and Darrell Scaife FBHS made their sessions varied and challenging in a really positive way and Tom Graham UKCC Level 4 British Dressage Accredited Coach, Regional Coach, and Group 2 rider gave an interesting insight into his journey as a coach on day one.
