Flin Flon Parks and Recreation will be holding an Ethics in Coaching seminar as part of the 2004 Coaching Manitoba winter seminar series. These seminars are designed for grass roots and community coaches. It will be held on Sunday, January 18 from 7-9 p.m. in the Green Room at the Community Hall. If you are interested in this two-hour seminar, you must register by December 19 by calling the Aqua Centre at 681-7540. "The focus is on the fundamentals of ethics in coaching, with examples of decisions that grass roots coaches face over their coaching career," said Brenda Russell, Flin Flon Recreation Director. "They will discuss different parenting styles of athletes' parents. For example, the disinterested parent or traditional sideline coach." Advice will be given on how to deal with certain issues that may arise, and look at case studies and scenarios, followed by a discussion period. The seminar is open to all coaches, and parents are welcome to attend. David Telles-Langdon will be leading the group. He is a chartered professional coach, director of the National Coaching Institute of Manitoba, and has Level 5 sailing certification. "This seminar gives an interesting perspective of coaching and ethics in this new millennium of sport, with things changing ever quickly," said Russell. "It is of benefit to the community for as many coaches and parents to take this course, to have everyone working together for the benefit of sport in the community."
