Time is running out to nominate in the UK Coaching Awards

There are just a few short weeks left to recognise great coaching by nominating in the UK Coaching Awards 2018.

The principle of the Awards is to recognise and reward great coaching at all levels across sport and activity, from community to high performance. 

There are two new award categories for 2018: Great Coaching Moment of the Year and Transforming Coaching through Technology. 

The first new gong celebrates a particular moment in time when a coach’s support and guidance really paid off. Any moment from 2018 can be nominated, whether it’s a coach cheering pool side as their swimmer finishes their first 50m race; or the England coach celebrating their netball team’s victory at the Commonwealth Games. 

The second is for an individual or team who has developed innovative technology, or who has made great use of technology, to enhance coach learning or practice, or to improve the experience or performance of participants or coaches.  

Returning categories include, for coaching:

  • Children’s Coach of the Year
  • Community Coach of the Year
  • Talent Development Coach of the Year
  • High Performance Coach of the YearH
  • Heather Crouch Young Coach of the Year
  • Disability Coach of the Year
  • Lifetime Achievement Award
  • The Coaching Chain

In support of coaching:

  • Coach Developer of the Year
  • Coaching Culture Organisation of the Year
  • Coaching for an Active Life Award

UK Coaching’s Director of Coaching Emma Atkins, said:

Across the UK, great coaching goes on day-in-day-out across the UK. You can celebrate great coaching by nominating a coach who has made a difference to the lives of others. 

“Let’s get together and embrace the power and value of coaching and the committed individuals who coach. Remember coaching is about people; people transforming the lives of others.” 

For the Awards, UK Coaching uses the broad definition of coaching and welcomes nominations on behalf of coaches, instructors, leaders, teachers, trainers and others who support people to achieve their sport and activity goals.

Public nominations close at noon on Friday 21 September.
