Why Is IGCC Offering A Mentorship Program?
Enhancing and Inspiring Goalkeeper Coaches and Goalkeeping Education have always been the driving forces behind The IGCC. For Goalkeeper Coaches there are many different philosophies and methodologies and these are constantly changing and evolving as the game itself changes.
As a coach, the most valuable resource you have is yourself and, as a coach, you MUST invest in your craft. BUT how do you evolve without guidance and without a pathway? It’s very difficult for many. Some Goalkeeper Coaches go abroad to find Goalkeeping Education, because the resources within the US are simply not there. We have no structure in place to mentor, teach, develop and inspire those who are passionate about being a coach of the Goalkeeping Position.
Our Mentorship Program is designed to fill a void in this country for Coaches of the Goalkeeping Position. We all learn in different ways, but receiving and processing feedback is essential. Developing as a coach often requires personal change and/or acceptance of other philosophies as well as having an open mindset.
In the absence of a Goalkeeping Pathway, we are offering an opportunity to be mentored by our Director, Phil Wheddon. The mentorship is not a periodic “touching base” it is an investment from both parties to work together to help to maximize your potential as a coach. As a member of the Mentorship Program, you will be challenged as a coach and as a person. You will be exposed to information and ideas that will enhance the WHY and HOW behind what you do and who you are.
