What Makes your Session Unmissable?

The first animation in the UK Coaching and Sport England young people series encourages you to be creative. Drawing on recent research it contains fun ideas and tips for coaches

Young people are seeking meaningful experiences and need a reason to come back each week. They are not all the same; they want experiences that are tailored to them.

Research has found that behaviour can vary from month to month, or even week to week. A positive experience for one young person might be very different to another. You need to understand their motivations, likes, dislikes, hopes and dreams if you are to offer sessions young people want to return to.

Read the accompanying guide for more suggestions and ideas on how to make your sessions unmissable for young people.

Then discover more in the remaining three videos and accompanying guides in the series, designed to help you develop as a coach and meet the needs of young people.
