The programme links practical experience and activities with theory. Rookies develop confidence and leadership skills such as planning, organisation, self-reflection and problem solving. A Level 3 Diploma Certificate is available on completion of all 3 levels, and certificates can be added to CVs and higher education applications.
Using the Rookie Academy workbook, and supported by Red Tops, teens complete tasks and learn about activity coaching and topics such as health and safety (we make it more interesting than it sounds!), activity-session planning and delivery, techniques for managing child behaviour, assessing and analysing performance and target setting. Rookies progress to lead their own sessions under the supervision of our professional team.
Rookie Academy is proven to help teens considering a career in sport, coaching and education. After completing the programme and turning 18, many Rookies return and work for us.
