Coaching Week

Coaching Week is coming! Join us as we celebrate Great Coaching, 4-10 June.

The inaugural event will see a week-long celebration of #GreatCoaching take place across the nation, with UK Coaching working alongside a range of partners and national governing bodies of sport to recognise great coaching.

Over nine million adults in the UK have received coaching over the past 12 months with a broad range of benefits delivered to recipients.

To mark Coaching Week, UK Coaching is inviting people across the UK to share when and where they have experienced great coaching. To help people know what they are looking for, UK Coaching is currently working with agencies to develop our Principles of Great Coaching, aimed to help define great coaching. These principles will help people recognise and understand great coaching.

Celebrating Great Coaching

Each day we will be highlighting great coaching stories as we bring to life what great coaching is and how it continues to benefit others… and we want you to join us.

If you’re a coach yourself or know somebody else who is, then join us on social media by celebrating what makes them a great coach using the hashtag #GreatCoaching. We’ll also be providing you with an opportunity to recognise your own coach who demonstrates our principles of great coaching.

Put Coaching Week in your diary and keep up to date with all the latest information.

Join us in celebrating coaching and supporting Coaching Week from 4-10 June 2018.


How You Can Get Involved

We'll be releasing great coaching content to celebrate Coaching Week each day from 4-10 June. Here's how you can play your part in celebrating Great Coaching:

If you're coached:

Celebrate Great Coaching by telling us your stories of how coaching has helped you in sport, physical activity and beyond using #GreatCoaching.

Recognise your own coach who lives and breathes great coaching by presenting them with a #GreatCoaching certificate (available here from the start of Coaching week).

If you're coaching:

Celebrate Great Coaching by sharing your own coaching stories using the #GreatCoaching hashtag via your own social media channels.

If you're a partner organisation:

Celebrate Great Coaching by sharing great coaching content. We'll be providing you with a toolkit to get you started but we want you to generate your own materials too. If you haven't yet told us you want to be involved and would like to find out more about sharing content, please contact our Communication Team.

If you're not currently involved in coaching but would like to know more:

Enjoy the content we'll be sharing alongside partners throughout Coaching Week and find out more about the many benefits it offers to those who are coaching as well as those who are coached by following #GreatCoaching.
