The Level 2 Intermediate Recreational Running Coach Accreditation course trains coaches to develop the fundamental technical and strategic skills for runners training for 5km through to marathon events. It develops your coaching skills in communication and instruction, safety, organisation and the management of groups. It also develops your skills and understanding of fundamental drills, movements and training principles for coaching recreational runners. It is particularly useful for personal trainers who are looking to move into the endurance and long run training space.
At the completion of the Level 2 Intermediate Recreational Running Coach Accreditation Program coaches will be able to:
Monitor and adapt the training environment to ensure inclusive and safe activity that is both enjoyable and challenging for recreational runners in clubs, squads, groups and individual training situations.
Evaluate and identify appropriate activities in accordance with the physical, emotional and social maturation of the recreational runners in their program. Vary training activities to maintain a stimulating and engaging training environment.
Provide suitable feedback on performance, for groups and individuals during training sessions.
Communicate effectively in group and individual situations.
Use appropriate methods, drills and activities to instruct appropriate technical models to recreational runners.
Plan and evaluate a training session and make appropriate adjustments for subsequent sessions.
