UK Coaching Awards 2021

The UK Coaching Awards is a unique opportunity for the sport and physical activity industry to honour and reward the work of #GreatCoaching across all levels in the UK. The showpiece event, seen as one of the most prestigious within the coaching community, will recognise the contribution coaches made in transforming lives in communities nationwide.

Nominations for 2021 are now open! 

We're encouraging YOU to nominate a coach for our awards as part of our Great Coaching Comeback campaign - let's support and celebrate our coaches as they reinvent, recover and return to coaching following the lifting of coronavirus lockdown restrictions.

UK Coaching CEO Mark Gannon, said:

We would like the public to support the Great Coaching Comeback campaign by giving kudos to coaches, who have transformed lives and built inspired communities.
