In this article, we cover the summary for a video recording of a coaching mentorship seminar done by Jonus Ong on the 17th of April 2022, in his capacity as Head of Coaching Development and Athlete Discipline with Powerlifting Singapore. He has had a long-running interest in mentorship pertaining to powerlifting and coaching in the sport, and ENSŌ Powerlifting is proud to be working together with him to come up with a pilot curriculum based on issues and challenges coaches face, and skill sets that aspiring coaches should acquire to get better.
This video recording is the first of the lessons/sharing, and covers the role, responsibilities and relationships of a powerlifting coach. As a companion piece, you can read more about his perspective in The Coach: What is He/She.
If you know anyone who might be interested in becoming a better coach and understand how coaching works, feel free to share it along. Cheers!
