Sport for Life teams up with HeadStartPro

HeadStartPro Performance Training is a sports-education service provider dedicated to improving the health and longevity of athletes with accessible and affordable online courses.

HeadStartPro’s multi-sport approach and universal concepts make performance and injury prevention training available to a broad spectrum of coaches and athletes in the Learn to Train, Train to Train, and Train to Compete stages of Sport for Life’s Long-Term Development in Sport and Physical Activity framework. The aim of HeadStartPro’s e-learning courses is to redefine the way that injury prevention is approached in Canada and beyond. By using better performances as the driving motivation for coaches and athletes to shift their behaviour, the courses aim to help athletes achieve peak performances more reliably while preventing injuries.

“Sport for Life is thrilled to be able to offer the HeadStartPro coaching course on our online Campus. This will enable coaches around the country to better prepare their athletes in injury prevention and will be a great complement to our current e-learning courses,” said Zac Andrus, Senior Coordinator of Digital Services at Sport for Life.

In the HeadStartPro Coaching Course you will learn to help your athletes achieve their full potential with a performance-driven, mental training process. The most successful athletes in these stages are set apart by their ability to control their minds and control the moment. Moving beyond physical competency to mental proficiency requires process-driven tactics. By taking this course, you will learn transferable skills to help your team improve focus, awareness, and mindfulness.

“We couldn’t be happier to partner with Sport for Life to offer this essential course through their online Campus. We want all athletes to be able to compete safely and this course lines up well with Sport for Life’s Long-Term Development stages,” said HeadStartPro Co-Founder Mike Shaw.

The goal of HeadStartPro is to prevent the critical errors and decisions compromised by rushing, frustration, fatigue, and complacency. These four states are responsible for most of the performance errors our athletes make and over 95% of all acute injuries. By recognizing the states and then activating a set of Critical Error Reduction Techniques (CERTs), it positions your team to achieve peak performances more reliably. You will enjoy enhanced performance and your athletes will experience fewer costly injuries once you activate the strategies taught in this course.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Empower your athletes with the skills to improve focus, awareness, and decision-making
  • Help your athletes to manage internal and external distractions, and to control their physical and mental states
  • Improve team cohesion and communication by using a shared vocabulary and common language
  • Reduce critical errors, and static and dynamic performance errors
  • Enhance athlete self-confidence
  • Enhance team performance
  • Prevent costly injuries

Learners are required to successfully complete all parts and related learning activities to receive a certificate of completion.

Our Sport for Life e-learning courses are designed to boost your knowledge and capacity in physical literacy and quality sport on your schedule. We are thrilled to be partnering with HeadStartPro on this e-learning course.
