I know this has been talked about in the past but...how does this course fit in with the ELA NGB which is recognized by sport England in their Sports coaching structure?

Hey guys! The simple and intentional answer is...IT DOES NOT. These courses were never designed to be a "governing" certification for coaching in England by any means as that was not our goal nor desire with this. This is strictly a well designed and thought out program that will encourage the development and sustainability of coaches across the board in the UK and Europe. This coaching program is about far more than just making a few courses available to budding coaches. It’s about creating a community of passionate and dedicated coaches in this sport that place unwavering importance on self education and development through every facet of their role. We hope to do our part to help grow, encourage, develop, and sustain the coaching community here in the UK and abroad with these courses and other development resources in the pipeline within our Coach Academy. Please feel free to post up any questions you might have in regards to these fantastic courses. Cheers!

Is there a section on management speak?

Sounds like it could do with some synergising.

I trust there's a blue sky thinking section on clipboards?

Simple question.


Why is there a requirement for a coaching infrastructure that does not fit the NGB and Sport England recognition?

It seems strange to me that a niche sport requires differing coaching patterns and "qualifications". I for one am very in favour if more coaches. But query the nurturing under two differing structures.

I don,t see why somebody would participate in the arch level coaching programme if they then have to do the ELA course to be recognised and insured to coach. this would mean paying twice for one thing. I am not knocking the effort and intentions of Arch level but dont see "the point" in doing it if you cant then attempt to earn money or officially use your "qualification"

Be careful with the "insured" thing at the mo. real hot potato. See South thread. Which applies to all ELA.

As we can fully appreciate and understand your questions and concerns (and fully encourage them!), it must be understood that this program has a much larger scope in it's future that just the England lacrosse community.

We highly encourage you to come along to the course in February and find out as it should be a great time! Message us and I'm sure we can make that happen for you my friend.

unfortunately £200 is a little bit to much to spend for me to find out, but i wish you luck...the site and course content looks good.

Good stuff. I find many English lacrosse coaching coarses to be a bit 'lacrosse-y'.

Will it help with my Latvian tap dancing or Romanian frog herding?

My Bolivian cat pointing has also been sadly neglected of late; lacking its usual sparkle and zest.

Personally I think this looks pretty good. For someone such as myself who was looking at Camp America and such the fact that it ties in with Americamp is a sweet deal to me. Paying £100 to have something which would allow me to coach in America for a Summer can't be bad!

Ian I think you are absolutely right, but we have been through this debate with Archlevel before (http://laxforums.co.uk//viewtopic.php?f=37&t=15190&p=135963&hilit=archlevel+coaching#p135963) in July 2011, where Vince went to great lengths to try and justify the difference.

Just to throw another spanner into the works:

why do people need to have the incentive of a qualification to want to go on a coaching course? As a player I would attend camps and courses just because i want to improve. Why can't the same be applied to coaching?
