The OSA Coaching Development Program is pleased to announce the 2017 class for the Female Mentorship Program.
Six female coaches were selected from across the province to take part in this one-on-one coach development opportunity.
Other applicants to the program will receive group instruction through workshops, practical instruction and consistent performance feedback.
The Female Mentorship Program is designed to develop senior female coaches, who in turn will act as educators and mentors to other female coaches who wish to further develop and progress their coaching careers.
The mentorship program is part of a holistic support system approach to enabling promising coaches across the province to reach their full coaching potential in the sport.
Annually the OSA seeks applications for Mentee Coaches.
The mentee coaches must be working toward the Provincial B and National B coaching licenses.
The six coaches are selected based on their experience, potential, and the recommendations supporting their application.
The selected applicants will be developed in the OSA mentoring program under the guidance of the OSA's Coach Development Team and the Female Head Mentor coach.
Successful candidates will be required to commit to a 9-month program on a volunteer basis.
These coaches will eventually be able to step into a coaching leadership role as they attain their Provincial B or National B license.
The six mentee coaches are listed below.
