Stream 3: Instruction

Instructors in the Instruction stream must have sport-specific skills and training, whether instructing at the beginner or advanced skill levels. Many are former participants in the sport.

The Instruction stream has three different levels of workshops: Beginners, Intermediate performers, and Advanced performers.

Instructors in the Instruction – Beginners context are usually working with participants who are experiencing the sport for the first time through a series of lessons. Typically there’s no formalized competition at this level – it’s strictly about skill development and there is a short timeframe of interaction between the instructor and the participant.

Instructors in the Instruction – Intermediate Performers and Instruction – Advanced Performers contexts are very specialized and are specifically there to assist athletes crossing over from competitive sport to gain enhanced skills, and in some cases, tactical development specific to their sport.

Instructor coaching workshops are sport specific, details of which can be found directly from your Provincial Sport Organization.
