Coaches Exchange Trip 2012 – Leonardo da Vinci Mobility Project

Friday, February 3, 2012, 12:36

Luxol Sports Club will be participating in the Leonardo da Vinci Programme 2012 where 10 of our Coaching staff have been selected to participate in a Mobility for a week in March 2012. The purpose of this trip is for our Coaches to evaluate how football is delivered in nations across Europe (Scotland) and to compare other techniques and ideas with what is currently being delivered in Malta.

The aims of the proposal include the continued professional development of Luxol coaching staff, with particular emphasis on the coaching of young athletes i.e. to exchange experiences regarding the latest coaching methodologies for children aged between 3 and 16 years, carry out a skills analysis, placement profile, practical observations and planning experiences and carry out reflective practice between the host and sending countries. A First Aid Course by the Malta Red Cross is being provided at Luxol Sports Club in the next few days for all participants as preparatory to their project.

Building on the experience of previous projects, which has benefited all participants and the Club, we realised from our evaluation a greater experience could be produced if importance is given to values such as the personality ethic which is public image of attitudes and behaviours, skills and techniques, which assist the process of human interaction in turn supporting the character ethic to assist in the participants’ effectiveness as Coaches. This model is designed to support social inclusion, developing knowledge and skills by encouraging cooperation between educational institutions and sport organisations within Europe.

At the end of the day, we believe Sport can be used as a delivery method for a range of educational outcomes and experiences to help develop successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors. The mobility will take place  from Tuesday 27th March to Tuesday 3rd April 2012.

Leonardo da Vinci is part of the Lifelong Learning Programme, and is funded by the European Commission.
