The Goalball Leaders Award is a standalone qualification that is accredited by Goalball UK, the National Governing Body of the Paralympic sport. It is primarily for coaches who are going to be working with blind and partially sighted players in a competitive club environment.
The aims of the course are to teach candidates:-
How to communicate and guide a person with a visual impairment in a sporting environment
How to mark out a Goalball court and what equipment is required
How to lead an introductory coaching session, including a warm up and basic attacking and defending techniques
The format and rules of the game, including the domestic structure and relevant contacts for further information
This highly practical one day course is delivered by an approved Goalball UK Tutor. Candidates will receive a certificate at the end of the course. There is no formal examination or final assessment.
The course is free all we ask is for you to come along to one of our Beacon Goalball sessions after the course is completed.
