Central Region Coach Training Weekend with G Dale

December 10, 2016 - December 11, 2016

Gliding NZ One Day Coaching Workshop
Papawai, Greytown
10 or 11 December 

0900 – 1730 

Presenter G Dale  – GNZ National Head Coach

Course Format          

The content is varied, ranging from a general discussion on  where cross country soaring stands in NZ today and how it is currently taught / coached, to sessions based on  the new GNZ Coaching Manual ( https://gliding.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/GNZ-Coaching-Manual.pdf ) including the sports psychology of students & coaches, to more specific cross country coaching techniques. 

The general aim is to give G and the participants a common view of where we are at and what a “G Dale lead coaching initiative”  will contribute to the pursuit of excellence in cross country soaring in NZ.

 Who should attend ( Attendees limited to 10 / 12 per day )

Experienced Cross Country pilots with a desire to share that experience with budding Cross Country pilots (who will be at a stage where they can climb a glider and land it out safely). Previous instructing experience would be useful but not essential. 

When G has completed the first NZ wide series of 3 workshops, based on the discussions and the workshop findings, the overall coaching structure will be further defined and developed.

The venue for the above course will be our ‘Summer Clubhouse ‘ situated at JRville 63 Pah Rd  Papawai.  

 The Registration Form will be found here:


Numbers are somewhat limited by the nature of the course and the space available so please Register early.

Limited accommodation is available onsite if required for the Fri and Sat evenings  – please contact Ross Sutherland at ross.sutherland99@gmail.com for further information.
