Thank you Wendy, I'm becoming more involved than usual coaching Sailability and any information coming from another coach's point of view is really useful. I hope you get others input too as a broad discussion helps all of us. Cheers, JK PS We all need to pressurise our NGO's, well put :-)

I agree that there should be a unit at level 2 if not level 1 of any coaching course. Having an interest in coaching people with all abilities I took myself off on a EFFS course which was great as I had to take part in sports from a disabled viewpoint which helped me consider how to adapt my coaching to account for all. As both a target shooting and an archery coach it has meant that you learn quickly to adapt both you coaching and equipment to suit. Coaching at the Spea coal Olympics often involves a three to one ratio but is very rewarding when they hit the target.

The sports coach uk course is ok but does not allow you to do the sports just presents information to consider.

Well put, a group where " the lead coach of the group didn't know how to integrate them " ? Depressing.
I use almost 1-2-1 occasionally to improve confidence, often a more experienced group member acting as a peer mentor will share their experiences and skills to integrate a person far more effectively than I can as they live the 'you can do it' message eg a partially blind autistic guest buddying a deaf partially blind autist..
The rest of the time we're all 'in it' together which is admittedly much easier for me to say in the level playing field of purpose built sailing boats out on the protected environment of Bristol's docks.
The Sainsbury training session is brilliant by the way, go to it if you can.
Fair winds and following seas, JK

How about this guide as a starting point to coaches:

Sorry for the shameless plug but this information can help any coach coach their group better through grouping people at certain points of their sessions by ability (no mention of disability here!!)

As a charity we have been coaching Angling for people with various disabilities for a number of years, which has been well received by all of the participants. Through the sport it has helped with the wellbeing and interaction with great days being enjoyed by all including the coaches. The main obstacle has been obtaining funding to support the coaching sessions!
