As Dodgeball is returning to play and clubs are slowly making their way back to the court, it is only fitting that coaching, too, returns. Last Sunday British Dodgeball held a Level 2 Coaching Course in Enfield, lead by our Director of National Teams, Johnathan Rudland, which saw the qualification of 13 new Dodgeball Coaches. Health and safety guidelines were in place with British Dodgeball’s Return To Play guidance and participants of the course stating that “the measures taken to combat Covid were perfect”.
John Rudland had this to say:
“Delivering face to face coaching courses was a daunting thought having not delivered one for 4 months due to Covid-19, but the measures put in place created a safe environment for all. We delivered the content as before but with all our return to play recommendations allowing coaches to safely plan, deliver and take part fully in the course while gaining the knowledge on how to coach dodgeball. The coaches sanitised their hands regularly between coaching sessions and equipment sharing was kept to an absolute minimum with groups working with the same equipment all day through colour coded balls. I enjoyed the day and felt we delivered the same content just in a different way to keep participants safe. I would fully recommend any to sign up for a course today to develop their understanding of dodgeball and how it can be coached effectively”.
