Our next student profile is a Bachelor of Sports Coaching (Management) student, Daniel Jenson.
Daniel is a busy basketball coach. Currently, Daniel is the Assistant Basketball Coach of the Queanbeyan Yowies in the BNSW Spalding Waratah League, the Head Coach of the Queanbeyan Roadrunners in the ACT Premier 2 Mens’ League, as well as the Acting Head Coach of the U12 Boys Representative Program in ACT.
One day Daniel’s basketball mentor suggested that to progress his coaching further he should look at a Coaching Degree. This was the catalyst for Daniel choosing the Bachelor of Sports Coaching (Management) at ACPE, providing him the opportunity to study coaching in more depth; “The units correlate to the coaching I am doing, and give me a new perspective when analysing why I do things a certain way”. Since commencing his studies at ACPE, Daniel has expressed joy towards the ability to develop his coaching knowledging, applying it to his every day; “So far my most enjoyable unit has been the Coaching Theory and Application unit, as I began to apply things I have learned with my current teams. I have been able to apply some of the Game Sense knowledge from the unit in my coaching along with reflecting on my use of questions and use of coaching activities.”
