Details

Coaching is changing.  For many years, the quality of sports coaching in schools was a reflection only of the individual coach’s experience and chosen approach.  Recent research and innovation has revealed that some strategies are much more effective than others in achieving behaviour change and performance improvement in young athletes.  Greater attention is being paid to the application of science, and the ways in which performer and coach can collaborate to create lasting improvement.

This Conference brings together leading figures from the world of coach development to provide examples of how schools can enhance the effectiveness of sports coaching, across a variety of activities and age groups.  As parents become more critical of coaching standards, it is important that schools can establish a philosophy of coaching which reflects best practice and doesn’t leave inexperienced teachers exposed with little support.

This programme will be of particular interest to teachers and coaches who are trying to develop a sports coaching strategy for their schools, and to lead other coaches in delivering industry-leading best practice.
