Code of Practice for Sports Coaches
Posted: Tue, 25 Jul 2017 08:42
We know that coaching encourages people to start in sport and physical activity, improves enjoyment, maintains engagement, improves fitness, develops skills and builds lifelong connections to sport and activity. This means that coaches, leaders and instructors play a critical role in the development of any sport or activity, and in the lives of the people they coach. Good coaches ensure participants have positive experiences, so they are more likely to continue and achieve their potential.
Coaches must demonstrate a high degree of honesty, integrity and competence. The need for coaches to understand and act on their responsibilities is vital to sport, as is the need to promote participation for fun and enjoyment, as well as achievement. This is implicit in good coaching practice and promotes a professional image. This Code of Practice for Sports Coaches defines all that is best in coaching practice.
