Curious Coaches' Club: Coaching Teenagers

Coaching teenagers can be a complex and challenging process for anyone! In this podcast, Level 4 Rugby Coach and RFU Sports Coach Mentor Gareth Hatherley-Hurford, UEFA B and Youth Award Football Coach Caroline Ames and UK Coaching's Mark Bateman discuss how to help young people deal with change and uncertainty by providing information, emotional support and guidance

Coaching teenagers can be a complex and challenging process for anyone! Young people's lives are full of change. If you think about what changes a young person faces between the ages of 11 and 20, it is completely transforming. 

Managing life changes or transitions is one of the main reasons why young people stop playing sport. On the flip side, it can also be a time when a new sporting habit can be formed. As a coach, you play a critical role in helping a young person maintain their sporting habit.

In this session, Level 4 Rugby Coach and RFU Sports Coach Mentor Gareth Hatherley-Hurford, UEFA B and Youth Award Football Coach Caroline Ames and UK Coaching's Mark Bateman discuss how to help young people deal with change and uncertainty by providing information, emotional support and guidance.

They cover:

  • what motivates young people
  • how to coach young people when life changes
  • coaching tips on how to plan and deliver sessions to meet young people's needs
  • how to make your sessions unmissable.
