For the June 2019 podcast, I talked with Troy Engle. Troy is an American track and field coach who is now working in Singapore. He has been involved with developing the Singapore coaching education and development system and has also recently moved into working with academies.
We discuss his past coaching experience in the US from being a college track and field coach to a Paralympic coach.
Troy attended the NSSU Coach Development program that he describes as a life changing experience. The USCCE/ICCE Coach Developer Academy is modeled on this program (albeit in a shortened format).
We discuss the sporting culture in Singapore where a challenge is to change the view that sport is just something kids do (more my words than Troy’s). We also discuss the other challenges and opportunities in Singapore.
