    Coaching Manitoba Releases New iBook Coaching Series

    For early educators, school, grassroots and developmental coaches, this resource is extremely convenient and features full demos with videos, how to and lesson plans, and direct links to complimentary programs. You must have iTunes to download this resource.
    Coaching iBooks
    iBooks available today:
    Games with a Purpose iBook
    Games with a Purpose focuses on how to use fun games and activities to reinforce skill acquisition for six physical literacy skills: balance, running, jumping, throwing, catching, and striking.

    More than just Games iBook
    More than just Games focuses on games in a variety of venues including: indoor, outdoor, on ice, and in water. The games are ones that sports can use to help athletes acquire key physical literacy skills in many venues and surfaces, along with a variety of sport equipment.
    IBooks
    These two great resources are for people working with children ages 4-8.
    To keep this iBook affordable for all coaches we have kept the price minimal at $4.99.

    Use your iBook anywhere
    One of the key advantages to the Coaching Manitoba iBook is its portability. The iPad is designed to be carried around and moved from location to location. Once your iBook has been downloaded and installed, it is always available, no matter your location. iBooks do not require a connection to the internet in order to operate. They do not need Wi-Fi or cellular phone service to work. This means that they are ideally suited for demonstrations on the field of play & in the gym.

    The iBooks are available for iPad, iPad Mini, and Mac OS X
    Coaching Manitoba’s full feature digital iBooks are available only for Apple iPad and iPad mini. However, Apple has indicated that their iBook reader will be expanded to work on Mac desktop computers in their newest update to Mac OS. This update is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2013.

    “In 2013, tablet shipments will exceed those of portable PCs.” (IDC-May 28, 2013)
