 In preparation for coaches attending the British Championships in December we are putting on two Matside courses as it is a requirement from British Judo that all coaches who qualified after 2013 must have attended a Matside course before being allowed matside at the national event. This course also qualifies as a coach revalidation course. 

The main aim of Matside is to deliver, discuss and work with the requirements of a UKCC (BJA) Level 1 and 2 when coaching matside. This will enable coaches to confidently prepare players pre, during and post matside at club, area and national level competition.

Please note that without completing this module, all UKCC (BJA) Level 1 and 2 Coaches qualifying after January 2013 will not be able to coach player’s matside at relevant level competition (BJA Level 1 without support of BJA level 2/3 coach).

Course Objectives:

Provide information on safe matside coaching.

Create coaches awareness of player’s needs.

Explore critical areas of player support, before, during and after competition.

Provide information on and discuss coaching behaviour.
