ISU eLearning welcomes you to a series of coaching education modules, specifically focused on coaching children ages 5-12.

ISU eLearning and iCoachKids, an Erasmus+ co-funded eLearning program, have partnered together.  Originally, this content was created to cater to sport as a whole. Some materials have been modified slightly or adapted to focus more closely on skating sports. This learning is ideal for coaches working with children and young athletes. 

The first course, with 6 modules, offers an overview of the role of a coach and developing effective environments for children in sport/skating. You’ll learn about the importance of safeguarding and protecting children in general sport and the value of having a coaching philosophy and vision. There will also be a brief explanation of the impact of child growth and development and aspects to remember when you are planning developmentally appropriate activities.
