ISAF Training and Development

With just a few days to go until the 2011 ISAF Training Scholarship participants arrive in the UK, the ISAF Training and Development Manager Dan Jaspers explains to us a little more about this high profile course.
With specific training elements in Safety Boat training, SWOT Analysis, MNA development plan writing, Level 1,2 and 3 Coach, First Aid training, Presentation skills and a two day 'Managing Outcomes' workshop as just some of the modules on the Course the International team will be putting in some long days both on and off the water.

View an interview with Dan Jaspers here as he talks about the 2011 ISAF Training Scholarship.

The 2011 Scholarship Candidates are as follows:

1. Mrs Dyan Puspito Rini (Ririn) - Indonesia
2. Mr Go Hashimoto - Japan
3. Mr Earl Tobias - Trinidad and Tobago
4. Mr Rodin Acosta - Trinidad and Tobago
5. Ms Anna Ólöf Kristófersdóttir - Iceland

When the 8 week Sports Specific Training course for Coaches starts at the Rockley Academy in Poole, UK next Monday (5th September) the Candidates will be spending a few days getting used to their new surrounding by going through some basic powerboat handling skills. This activity will also give them a great opportunity to get to know the sailing area that will be their home for most of the time in the UK. We will be writing regular items about the training that the coaches will be undertaking right up until the end of the course (October 28th).
