Spring Coaching has been running for over 10 years. At first I worked as a teacher for 4 to 18 years old specialising in Dance and Netball. During this time and once I had left teaching, Icame across a real lack of knowledge and training that many teachers are given in these important national curriculum subjects.
I started Spring Coaching as a part time business to mainly coach teachers, coaches and players to help them improve their netball. To improve their own game, and more importantly, to motivate them and provide them with the confidence to often teach a sport they don’t play themselves. Through this interaction with teachers and coaches, many more courses have been developed to help teachers in the different disciplines.

Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2 Courses
All 3 courses have been developed on request from Primary School teachers who had not received much training in games, dance and gymnastics when at University. They wanted a course that would help them with new ideas to teach KS1 & KS2, how to organise groups of young children, ideas of how to develop their skills and what to expect form them. The dance courses come with a tape which includes all the music for dance routines taught on the course as well as additional tracks and ideas and how to use them. The ideal is to help primary school teachers with confidence and motivation so they get the most out of their time with their pupils in Activity lessons.
Games Workshop – 2 hour workshop for teachers of KS1 and KS2 children in Games. Looking at ways of keeping the whole group active and also ways to increase and better activity skills i.e. coordination, jumping, running
