Event Information

Over 2.3 million young people are not active for 30 minutes per day on average, and as one of the most fun and popular team sports in the UK, dodgeball could provide a solution for many young people. The Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Dodgeball provides you with the training to be able to coach dodgeball skills and make technical corrections to improve player performance; teach an increasing range of offensive and defensive strategies to improve tactical understanding; understand and apply the dodgeball ruleset to sessions, with the ability to adapt rules to increase the rate of player development; lead safe sessions and understand and apply a range of coaching approaches. This is a blended learning course, consisting of 30 minutes of pre-course learning and then 8 hours of practical learning and assessment on a Level 2 coaching course. This coaching certificate enables participants to deliver dodgeball sessions independently as part of the British Dodgeball minimum deployment requirements.
