Learning Pool offers online training for athletes and coaches

Learning Pool, the pioneers of the industry-leading learning suite, Stream, has partnered with nonprofit The True Athlete Project to deliver online training to athletes, coaches and governing bodies through Stream Learning Suite .

Over the past few years, Learning Pool has had the opportunity to work with some of the biggest sports organizations in the world, including the FA. During this trip, we were connected with The True Athlete Project and identified an opportunity to give back to the sport.

The True Athlete Project (TAP) is a sports charity that works with athletes, coaches and national governing bodies to reinvent sport as a training ground for compassion, mindfulness and mental well-being. .

For all the good sport can bring to societies around the world, we’ve all seen the headlines about how it hasn’t reached its full potential either, leading to high rates of dropout, burnout , bullying, anxiety, depression and suffering. . Dispelling this attitude, TAP has redefined the idea of ​​an athlete as someone who develops both mind and body to help others and make the world a better place.

In doing so, TAP has launched a number of initiatives and programs – its Athlete Mentoring Program is the cornerstone of these initiatives and includes working with a number of National Governing Bodies including UK Fencing , coach development, working with local communities and schools and retreats. Recently, Laurence Halsted, a member of the TAP team, former Olympian and Performance Director at Danish Fencing, published her first book, “Becoming a Real Athlete”.

In response to its continued growth, TAP identified the need for an e-learning platform to help extend its work to a wider audience. As part of our corporate social responsibility efforts, we stepped in to help Sam Parfitt, Founder and CEO, and the TAP team meet this need. Using Stream Learning Suite and our custom content development services, TAP has now launched its new “Become a Real Athlete” online training program designed for athletes, coaches and governing bodies. The course consists of several elements of reflection and mindfulness exercises, including a three-part breathing routine to help reduce stress.

Sam Parfitt, Founder and CEO of TAP, said, “With all the pressures on coaches and athletes, there is an increasing need to help them develop a healthy foundation for true success. We are delighted to have Learning Pool as a partner to support our work and it will make a big difference to our ability to grow.

The Learning Pool’s Director of Strategic Client Development, Sam Barbee, also said: “The True Athlete Project is a charity making a real difference in sport and positively impacting the world we all live in. behind Sam and the team. It’s a real privilege to partner with TAP on their journey and the great work they do. »

Learning Pool is also committed to supporting ARC Fitness, a Derry-based non-profit social enterprise that helps individuals and their loved ones recover from alcoholism and drug addiction. Learn more here.
