How to Support Athletes Through Transitions

Advice on using UK Coaching's Principles of Great Coaching to support athletes through transitions, developed in partnership with Assistant Coach of England boys’ U18 hockey team James Culnane. James emphasises the importance of seeing beyond performance and doing what is right for them

It can be difficult to welcome new athletes into our environments and it can be tough to see them go. This is, however, part and parcel of the coaching process. It is important that we understand and support the process and understand the influence that responsibility might have on athletes we have worked with. 

The Wylleman holistic athlete career model helps us recognise the psychological and psychosocial implications on transitioning athletes. These influences can be incredibly impactful both in a negative and a positive way.
