Mentoring Program

INS Québec will be financially supporting sports federations in Quebec in the implementation of mentoring development programs for coaches about to take on head coaching positions with national teams.

Provincial sport federations will receive a bursary of no more than $10,000 allocated toward mentoring activities for coaching over a one-year period.

Recognized mentoring activities

Mentoring (definition): A structured process that provides personalized support in order to achieve formal learning objectives.

Possible formats: traditional (expert to learner) or peer to peer; individual or group; etc.

Content/objectives of the mentoring process

The focus of the mentoring project is to identify the coach’s individual training needs, to develop a training plan and then—with the help of experts, including those from INS Québec—to conduct coach development. The learning objectives must be clearly defined for each mentee and aimed at improving the coach’s skills. The skills in question may be sport-specific (defined by the sports federation), related to other performance factors (e.g. mental preparedness, nutrition, physiology, recovery, planning, intervention, management etc.) or interdisciplinary (e.g. problem-solving, critical analysis, communication, scientific methodology, innovation, etc.).
