Great Coaching to be recognised as UK’s first Coaching Week launches in 2018
Posted: Wed, 14 Feb 2018 08:47
UK Coaching has confirmed that 2018 will see the inaugural Coaching Week launched.
Taking place from 4-10 June, Coaching Week will see a week-long celebration of great coaching take place across the nation.
To mark Coaching Week, UK Coaching is inviting people across the UK to share when and where they have experienced great coaching. To help people know what they are looking for, UK Coaching is currently working with agencies to develop the 10 Principles of Great Coaching, aimed to help define great coaching. These principles will help people recognise and understand great coaching.
Coaching Week will see great coaching celebrated across the nation, with UK Coaching working alongside a range of partners and national governing bodies of sport.
The week provides an annual platform to empower athletes and coaches to celebrate their community.
The week also aims to highlight the broader benefits of coaching and the fact that great coaching can inspire others and make a difference to people's mental and physical well-being, as well as contribute to individual, economic and social development.
Over nine million adults in the UK have received coaching over the past 12 months with a broad range of benefits delivered to recipients.
A broader definition of coaching now exists to recognise the wider benefits it has on society, as well as incorporating the traditional coaching of teaching sport specific skills and knowledge.
UK Coaching is the leading organisation in the UK for coaching and will work closely with partners, athletes and coaches for the new annual event to create a platform to celebrate and recognise #GreatCoaching.
