Enhancing Mentoring Skills Of Sport Coaches

Enhancing Mentoring Skills Of Sport Coaches
Project code 2018- 3066/001-001
Progetto finanziato dall’Unione Europea
nell’ambito del Programma Erasmus+ Sport

The main objective of the project is to improve the training of sports coaches with particular attention to the development of mentoring skills. We refer to that set of very important maieutic approaches and methodologies in order to make sport a truly effective educational experience.
These skills are often acquired by sports coaches spontaneously and independently, because the coaches’ training courses do not usually include the study and acquisition of mentoring methodologies and approaches.
Improving the mentoring capacity of sports coaches means promoting sport as an educational tool capable of strengthening the self-esteem of young people, discovering and training their potential, as well as cultivating the ability of young people to relate to diversity, to include and respect everyone. to develop healthy competition and thus contribute to the development of a less violent, more inclusive, multicultural world.
