UK Coaching Week 2024 is Moving to April

For one year only, our annual celebration of great coaching will be kicking off earlier – running from 29 April to 5 May.

This year’s celebration is marked by a theme that aims to create lasting impact by igniting thoughtful conversations, cultivating knowledge, and inspiring positive change.

The theme:

Holistic Coaching: Developing Skills for Life.

We will be exploring the meaning of holistic coaching and the positive and profound impact it can have. We will also be encouraging the public and the sport and physical activity community to express their appreciation and gratitude towards coaches by telling us how they, their friends or their family, have developed holistically under their care and support.

Why the Move?

This year, we’re breaking with tradition and starting the celebration early, from 29 April to 5 May 2024.

Why wait until June to celebrate the brilliance of our coaches? Their dedication, passion, and commitment are truly transformative, leaving indelible marks on the lives they touch, so we couldn’t resist saying #ThanksCoach even earlier this year.

The decision to move UK Coaching Week is a special one-time occurrence, and don’t worry, we still have something special planned for June. There’s a big surprise in the pipeline, a grand announcement that we can’t wait to unveil.

Holistic Coaching: Developing Skills for Life

Holistic coaching is about developing the whole person.

It goes beyond sporting experience, serving as a key to unlocking potential and helping to shape individuals into well-rounded, successful, and resilient people, both on and off the field. 

It transforms lives!

Our mission for the week and beyond is to:

  1. Empower coaches to understand and embrace the value of enriching life skills such as teamwork, leadership, resilience, decision-making, and more.
  1. Encourage the public and the sport and physical activity community to express their appreciation for coaches. It’s crucial that we recognise and celebrate the dedication of those coaches who nurture well-rounded individuals both in sport and physical activity and in life.

Join us in celebrating and promoting the profound impact of Holistic Coaching on individuals of all ages. 

#ThanksCoach: Expressing Gratitude – A Call to Action

This year, we're calling on the public and the sport and physical activity community to express their appreciation for coaches, especially those dedicated to holistic development.
