Summer Coaching Courses 2021

We’re delighted to confirm that a number of coaching courses will take place this summer at the Norfolk Korfball Association’s summer camp.

The Norfolk KAs summer camp (31 July – 7 August) will take place at Eaton Vale Activity Centre, just outside the city of Norwich with most of the korfball practical sessions at Sportspark at the University of East Anglia (UEA) campus.

The new 1st4Sport Level 2 Coaching Award with a new, blended approach to delivery which encompasses digital learning platforms alongside in-person practical elements will be piloted by the Norfolk Korfball Association at their Korfball Summer Camp (31 July – 7 August). 

For further details of the Level 1 and 2 courses, to book, and to apply for a grant, contact Norfolk KA’s Philip Buttinger. More information about the summer camp is available here.

Spaces on both courses are strictly limited. We recommend that you contact the Norfolk KA as soon as possible to secure your place.

England Korfball Level 1 Coaching Certificate 

Saturday 31 July – Sunday 1 August 2021

This entry level coaching qualification, normally delivered in one day, is spread over 2 days to allow more time for practical coaching and interaction with the tutors. Starts at 2pm on the Saturday and finishes at 5pm on the Sunday. Cost £65 per person.

1st4Sport Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Korfball

Saturday 31 July – Saturday 7 August 2021

This is the nationally recognised qualification for club coaches and is run in conjunction with Sport Structures. 

It requires the completion of two additional tasks after the week’s course: 4 linked sessions delivered at your club followed by a final assessment, either delivered locally or at next year’s course. When completed you will be qualified to coach independently.

This course is an intensive week of high-level skills training, and teaching of coaching techniques. It will start with the delivery of the England Korfball Level 1 course to ensure everyone has the necessary basic skills followed by 3 days of korfball tactics and game play and 2 days of practical assessments. 

On top of the standard course there will be sessions on child protection, match coaching and rules, with the opportunity to sit the referee’s exam. There is also time to follow up with the participants’ specific needs. It is recommended that participants gain some coaching experience at their club before attending. 

Cost is £685 per person. There are grants of up to £200 available to help with the cost. Those who camp rather than having a bed in the Centre will have a further reduction of £100. Please note that a £100 deposit is required to reserve a place on this course.

Spaces on both courses are strictly limited. We recommend that you contact the Norfolk KA as soon as possible to secure your place.
