What is the Getting Started Course?  

The Getting Started award is basketballscotland's introductory level leadership award. The award focuses on coaching beginners and young players, with a view to introducing them to basketball. During each course candidates will be continually assessed and given feedback on their knowledge of introducing individual skills.  

This would be an ideal course for senior school pupils, youth workers, parents, FE/higher education students, Active Schools teams, Primary Teachers.

Those completing the course will be able to lead young players under the supervision of qualified coaches. This course will allow candidates to deliver blocks of coaching under the supervision of a qualified coach or teacher and will provide them with the necessary skills to assist at basketball festivals.

The course will be run by Chris Dodds (Sport Tayside & Fife Basketball Development Manager) assisted by Gregor Fleming (Fife Council Active Schools) and Daryl Woods (Dunfermline Reign).
