sports coach UK Website Wins Two Awards

Fri, 14 Oct 2011

The new sports coach UK website has won the Interactive Media Awards Best in Class Awards in two categories, Sport and Charity.

The Best in Class award is the highest honour bestowed by the Interactive Media Awards and recognises excellent planning, execution and overall professionalism.

The new sports coach UK website was launched in July. It has tailored sections for Coaches and Those Who Develop Coaches. There is also a Resource Bank containing information and good practice on areas such as Becoming a Coach, Coaching Children, Delivering Frontline Coaching, and Inclusion and Diversity.

sports coach UK Executive Director John Driscoll was delighted with the Award. He said: “Every organisation recognises the immense value of its website as a communications tool. As part of our drive for coaching excellence, the new sports coach UK website gives free access to a wealth of knowledge in various formats, from introductory DVDs to hundreds of detailed technical documents. These allow coaches from every sport to increase their understanding and raise their game. Better coaching in turn leads to more people enjoying more sport, at every level.”

“Creating the new site was a major project for us in view of the scope and complexity of our work, reaching out to coaches, coach educators, sports and other partners. This recognition from external media specialists IMA is a tribute to the technical expertise and sheer hard work of our marketing and communications team and our colleagues at Reading Room. Being competitive ourselves, we’re also pleased that we beat off around 200 other nominations for these awards.”
