Coach of the Year 2015-2016

It’s that time of the year again, when the Coach of the Year Award is decided.

There are two categories of Award:

•    Coach of a Female Team
•    Coach of Male Team

The nomination process will consider those who are coaching at ALL LEVELS of competition in Scotland and who hold an SVA Coach Registration for season 2015-2016.  The award process has been changed and simplified for this year.

The Coaching Panel will select 5 coaches in each category after reviewing the following parameters.

1)    Time invested into actively coaching-how many hours per week is the coach dedicating on ‘face to face’ coaching (20%)

2)    Time invested into personal Development – demonstrating an active willingness to improve as a coach (e.g. attending SVA Coaching CPD opportunities). (30%)

3)    Performance – achieving success at any playing level i.e. Schools, JNL, Senior National league (30%)

4)   Player Development – demonstrating success at improving player performance at any age level (20%)

The Coaches Commission will identify the coach of the year after consultation with this panel.
