Be a Netball Mentor!

Online Netball Mentor CourseNetball Australia in conjunction with the Australian Sports Commission is pleased to launch an online mentoring course for coaches, umpires and officials.

Mentoring is a highly effective way for coaches, umpires and officials to learn the ‘art’ of their role, and apply theory that they may have learnt in a classroom or through independent study.  Mentoring relationships can be formally structured, with mentors assigned to officials, or they can grow out of a chance encounter with a like-minded person and remain very informal.

The course has seven modules covering the following topics:

  • How mentoring works
  • Know yourself as a mentor
  • Initial meeting
  • Know your mentee
  • Giving Feedback
  • Improving Performance
  • Conflict/Challenging Situations

Mentoring is not new, but it is effective. Skilling mentors in their role can only enhance the mentee’s experience. Being able to provide quality feedback in a manner that empowers the mentee and allows them to develop in their own time and style is a skill that mentors need to have.
