We’re committed to keeping children in sport.
Did you know that not even 1 in 5 Australian children get anywhere near the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity a day? Or that this generation is the first generation to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents due to inactivity?
More importantly, did you know that 70% of children drop out of sports by age 13? Children drop out of sports for many reasons, however a primary reason is the lack of coaching received in school and club environments. Within school and club sports, athletes are separated by skill level and so are coaches. The most inexperienced coaches are placed in lower ranked teams. Subsequently, athletes requiring the most help are receiving the least.
This the reason Backyard Coach was launched in 2016. We want to help the 70%, the children not receiving adequate coaching. Over 2 years, Backyard Coach has helped facilitate over 2000 sessions in Brisbane and the Gold Coast. The focus of “Coaching On Your Terms” has empowered busy parents and families to finally receive an essential training service at their chosen time, price and location, with a highly accredited and experienced instructor.
