The Goalball Leaders Award is a stand alone qualification that is accredited by Goalball UK, the National Governing Body of the Paralympic sport. It is primarily for coaches who are going to be working with blind and partially sighted players in a competitive club environment.
The aims of the course are to teach candidates:-
- How to communicate and guide a person with a visual impairment in a sporting environment
- How to mark out a Goalball court and what equipment is required
- How to lead an introductory coaching session, including a warm up and basic attacking and defending techniques
- The format and rules of the game, including the domestic structure and relevant contacts for further information
This highly practical one day course is delivered by an approved Goalball UK tutor. There are no pre-requisites for attending the course although any candidates under the age of 16 can only qualify as an 'Assistant Leader'.
There is no formal examination or final assessment but candidates must be present for the full day and demonstrate satisfactory leadership skills in order to receive a certificate.
