What makes your session unmissable?

Coaches are critical to the success of any youth sports session. To help you create unmissable sessions, UK Coaching and Sport England have created a series of short animations and accompanying support guides to generate ideas.The first of these demonstrates that young people are seeking meaningful experiences and need a reason to come back each week.

‘What makes your session UNMISSABLE for young people’ draws on recent research and contains fun ideas and tips for coaches.

Young people are not all the same; they want experiences that are tailored to them. Research has found that behaviour can vary from month to month, or even week to week. A positive experience for one young person might be very different to another. Coaches need to understand their motivations, likes, dislikes, hopes and dreams if they are to offer sessions young people want to return to.
