A partnership with the Australian College of Physical Education (ACPE) sees our custom-built coaching app providing support to students studying to gain a degree within the sports coaching fields.
This term, first year coaching students enrolled on the Theory and Application of Coaching and Playing Sport unit, will use the app for its small-sided games content as part of their studies.
The students attend ACPE’s world class facilities at Sydney’s Olympic Park where a range of degree opportunities are offered including sports coach and sports business.
More than 100 students will use the specially built ACPE app to create age and ability appropriate training sessions to support both theoretical and practical aspects of their degree football content. The app also includes a tool for the students to create professional player evaluations.
We are delighted to have collaborated with this outstanding Australian institution that has been educating students for more than 100 years.
ACPE’s Director of Program Innovation and Development, Gareth Long said, "it is important that our first year sports coaching students are supported to design realistic and relevant coaching activities and games which also enable them to consider their own effective pedagogy and coaching interventions.
By having access to a custom-built version of the Football Sessions app we can ensure that this provides a platform of high-quality from which to help develop their planning and delivery of each coaching session.”
