UK Coaching is delighted to launch Coaching Week, 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.
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 the 10 Principles of Great Coaching, aimed to help define great coaching. These principles will help people recognise and understand 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.
The week provides an annual platform to celebrate Great Coaching.
Emma Atkins, Director of Coaching at UK Coaching said:
“We are very excited to be able to launch such an exciting campaign and ensure Coaching across the UK is rightly celebrated. We feel it is important for everyone to understand what to look for in a great coaching experience which our 10 Principles of Great Coaching will help with.
“The exciting part of this campaign is to hear from the public about what they feel great coaching is for them as for coaching to be great it primarily must meet our own motivations which in turn allows us to utilise sport and physical activity to benefit and in many cases transform our lives.
“Coaching Week will allow us to celebrate coaching throughout the nation, it is vitally important for us to help raise awareness of the broader benefits of coaching – we want to see everyone, from coaches, participants, parents and performers to all the organisations that deploy a coaching workforce, really gets behind this excellent initiative.”
Join us in celebrating coaching and supporting Coaching Week from 4-10 June 2018.
