“Having the coaches and the children there and getting to watch the coaches teach and interact with the children. This was super helpful for understanding the nuances of how to coach.”

I really do feel that having the chance to experience in full (with kids and coaches) was super helpful in understanding the flow and expectations and how to smoothly run a workshop at each station and in general. Watching the coaches in action was inspiring and made me feel much more confident and at ease. Seeing the children’s enjoyment and excitement was also inspiring and really cemented the reason and need for these workshops and made me even more excited to implement the workshops in KZN for our children
