Training in Focus - Live Events

Focussing on Quality Experiences to grow participation at your Discover Sailing Centre.

Australian Sailing presents Training In Focus – Live 2024

An updated event aimed at enhancing Discover Sailing Centre program delivery to better serve today’s needs. Aligning with Australian Sailing's Instructor, Coach, Officials Development Strategy, this year’s agenda will focus on assisting instructors and Discover Sailing Centre administrators to find more ways to grow their programs and will highlight the importance of giving participants great experiences to drive retention.

Accreditation Extensions:

All accredited Instructors attending the Training in Focus – Live 2024 events, will again benefit from an automatic 12-month extension of their qualifications. Removing the need for separate reaccreditation sessions at other times during the year.

Practical Learning:

During the morning sessions, facilitated by Andrew O'Loughlin, participants will gain practical understanding of the importance of providing quality experiences to retain and grow participation at their Centre. Andrew is an experienced sports advisor and facilitator, who specialises in enhancing participation and engagement. With over 25 years of experience, he has worked with many sports such as Athletics, AFL, Cricket, Tennis, Football, Rugby, Swimming, and Cycling, and offers strategies to improve experiences and to drive involvement.

The afternoon sessions will deliver hands-on learning experiences afloat. Led by Australian Sailing Chief Instructors and experienced Senior Instructors from each state, these on-water sessions offer valuable opportunities for skill refinement and real-world application.

Through attendance at the events, Australian Sailing aims to support instructors and Discover Sailing Centre administrators by providing practical tools to deliver quality experiences to participants. The goal is to inspire instructors and DSC administrators to enhance the overall quality of sailing experiences at their Discover Sailing Centre, thereby contributing to the sport's ongoing success and growth.
