Dinghy Coach/Assessors 

If you are interested in the RYA's programme of coach personal development (CPD) and would like know more about becoming a Coach/Assessor, then please read on.

A Coach/Assessor is, for many people, the pinnacle of their dinghy coaching career. These are the people at the forefront of training new Dinghy and Senior Instructors.

A common scenario it that you may have started as an Assistant Instructor at your local club or centre, passed your instructor course, instructed for a few seasons or even a gap year.

Then came the opportunity to step up and take more responsibility as a Senior Instructor. You enjoy this, but after several years (ideally in a variety of centres or clubs), you may feel ready to take the next step towards sharing your experience and knowledge with others, and help them join in the fun.

The Coach/Assessor course is for experienced Senior Instructors who also hold the Advanced Instructor endorsement. To be eligible for the course selection you should be a thoroughly competent sailor with good communication, motivation and leadership skills, good fleet management and coaching, with a positive, enthusiastic approach.

If you think this description fits you, contact your Regional Development Officer or RYA Training to discuss your application.

There is usually one Coach/Assessor course each year, preceded by two or three selection weekends, of which you need to attend one.

Don't talk about it, just do it!
